Addressing a press conference here on Monday Saira Afzal said that Dr. Asim has also been removed from the office of the president of Pakistan Nursing Council.
Afzal said Dr. Asim Hussain was responsible for the fake degrees and bad practices in PMDC. “We were aware about the matter but could not do anything to redress the situation as we were powerless,” she claimed.
The minister vowed accountability and inquiry of corruption and irregularities in PMDC promising handing over the case to National Accountability Bureau (NAB) and FIA.
Afzal said the PMDC will extend full cooperation to the investigative agencies.
The state minister vowed to get PMDC Ordinance approved by the Parliament. It is a mere coincidence that the Ordinance came to light when Dr Asim was arrested, she further said.
