PTI’s former MPA candidate from PP-66, Mandi Bahuddin has been appointed as CDA’s legal advisor. According to the notification issued, Advocate Shahid Nasim Gondal has been appointed with immediate effect on a monthly retainer to be settled and paid by CDA. “The department may entrust its legal matters/cases to the aforesaid legal advisor,” the order stated. The office order further added that former legal advisor of civic agency Advocate Kashif Malik should be barred from approaching the court.
It is pertinent to mention here that cases worth billions of rupees are pending against the civic agency before various courts and forums. A sound, capable and learned legal advisor is the need of the hour for the already imperiled CDA whose inquiries and references are pending before the National Accountability Bureau (NAB), Federal Investigation Agency (FIA), ombudsperson and other watchdogs.
