Staff Reporter

PTI leader and Sindh Governor-to be Im-ran Ismail announced on Sunday that that he would stay in his own house after his appointment. “The Governor House will be used only for official pur-pose. I will not stay there,” Ismail told media persons in Ka-rachi a day after PTI chairman Imran Khan named him as the next Governor of Sindh province. “We will cut the spending and see if the Governor House can be converted into a library or an educa-tional institute,” he said. To a question, Ismail said that Governor House was a historic building which can-not be bulldozed. The PTI politician said that the opposi-tion leader would be from his party which had emerged as the largest opposition group in the prov-ince. He said that PTI government would cooperate with Mayor of Karachi to execute development projects. “We will also try to seek the support of PPP to carry out develop-ment work in the me-tropolis,” he said. “The PTI government will lead on Imran Khan’s vision and bring about a real change,” he added.The Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) has nominated MPA-elect Haleem Adil Sheikh as its candidate for the position of leader of the opposition in the Sindh Assembly. Shortly after his nomination, the PTI leader also won support from party allies, including Muttahida Qaumi Movement Pakistan (MQM-P) and Grand Democratic Alliance (GDA). Mr Sheikh met leaders of both the parties at their offices who announced to support him unconditionally. PTI chief Imran Khan on Saturday approved party leader Imran Ismail’s nomination as the next Governor of Sindh. Ismail met the party chief at his Islamabad residence who approved his name for the slot. It is pertinent to note here that Sindh’s former governor Muhammad Zubair stepped down from his position and sent his resignation to the president on July 28, three days after PTI emerged as the biggest party after general elections.
