The province had also restrained the officers coming from Punjab and other provinces to take charge of their offices, according to sources.
Several DIGs had relinquished their charges in Sindh on the federal orders and eight seats of DIGs have been vacant in the province.Chief Minister Murad Ali Shah had warned Establishment Division to stay away from the political field. He had said that the province was already facing a shortage of Grade-20 officers.
“The federation is required to consult with the province over the transfer of a Grade-20 officer as per the rules but no consultation made on these transfers,” he had said.
The chief minister had said that the Sindh cabinet approved a decision to restrain the officers to relinquish their charge of the office.
