The SACM took stern notice of the sale of substandard goods and told AC Sialkot that it was her duty to check the quality of the goods. “You are getting paid for the work and it is your duty to keep a check on the things here,” Awan shouted at AC Sialkot.
The Assistant Commissioner Sialkot tried to clear her position on the matter but Firdous Ashiq Awan continued shouting at her. The AC then asked Firdous to behave, but all her requests went in vain. In retaliation, the AC left the place in anger.
