Sindh government has issued a notification barring officers from using more than one official vehicle, underlining it a measure for ‘good governance’.
A notification released by the Services, General Administration and Coordination Department states: “All the Administrative Secretaries/Head of the departments are required to make sure that officers are not in possession of or using more than one vehicle, in order to eliminate possibility of misuse of official vehicles.”
The letter has been sent to all authorities concerned of the province, including the Chief Minister House and the Governor House.
Last month, PPP chairman Bilawal Bhutto Zardari had held meetings with his party’s key men in Sindh to get a briefing on their performance and to share his future strategy in different areas.
“The message to each and every member of the cabinet is very clear; he [Mr Bhutto-Zardari] wants results,” LG Minister Ghani had said. “We were conveyed a very clear message well before we took oath and charge of our offices that he would keep a check on the performance of ministers and directly monitor their ministries.”
He said: “In our meeting, he asked for future plans and shared his thoughts to make my department’s performance better, not only in cities but also in rural areas to directly benefit the poor.”
