Sindh Chief Minister Syed Murad Ali Shah has said that access to information and e-suite services, including healthcare, e-finance, e-agriculture, and e-education will enable the rural and remote communities of the country to compete better to support the economic development of the country.


This he said on Thursday while speaking at a contract signing ceremony between USF and PTCL for laying Optic Fiber Cable (OFC) in Dadu, Jamshoro, Badin, Hyderabad, Larkana and Kambar & Shahdadkot districts here at a local hotel.


The program organized by Ministry of IT & Telecommunication was attended by Federal Minister IT & Telecommunication Syed Aminul Haq, Chief Secretary Sohail Rajput, Additional Secretary IT Mohsin Mushtaq, President & Group CEO PTCL & Ufone Hatem Bamatra and consul general of different countries.


Syed Murad Ali Shah said that it was his pleasure to be among the distinguished guests at the ‘Contract Signing of Optic Fiber Cable Projects (OFC) to be laid in Dadu, Jamshoro, Badin, Hyderabad, Larkana, Kambar & Shahdadkot Districts’.


The CM Sindh said that there was a time when technological advancements and economic conditions in some parts of our country were at a crucial stage, which hampered daily lives of millions of Pakistanis.


He added that just to overcome all these challenges, and in line with the vision of Digital Pakistan, the federal IT Ministry through Universal Service Fund (USF) has been running diverse projects which are playing a huge role in the socio-economic development of our people.


Meanwhile, Chief Minister Sindh Syed Murad Ali Shah on Thursday confirmed that Ghulam Nabi Memon will be the new Inspector General of Police (IG) Sindh, following the ouster of Mushtaq Mahar over his failure to deal with rising crime in the province, especially in Karachi.

“Ghulam Nabi Memon will be the new IG Sindh,” Murad Ali Shah said adding that the notification for his appointment will be issued in two days.

Previously, it emerged that the Sindh government has recommended the name of Additional Inspector General of Police (AIG) Karachi Ghulam Nabi Memon as Inspector General of Police (IG) Sindh, following the removal of Mushtaq Mahar.

According to sources, the Sindh government has forwarded the name of Ghulam Nabi Memon for appointment as IG Sindh during consultations between the Centre and the province for the appointment.

On May 18, Inspector General of Police (IG) Sindh Mushtaq Mahar was removed from his post on the directives of Chief Minister Sindh Syed Murad Ali Shah over the ongoing wave of terrorist acts in Karachi.

Mushtaq Mahar was directed to report to the establishment division and a BPS-21 officer Dr. Kamran Fazal has been given additional charge of the top slot of the police in the Sindh province.

The names of Mohsin Butt and Ghulam Nabi Memon were initially considered for new Inspector General of Police Sindh. “Kamran Fazal will remain IG until his retirement,” the sources at that time said.
