Sharjeel Memon said unleashing a counterblast statement
KARACHI: Information minister Sindh, Sharjeel Memon Friday snubbed his federal counterpart for laying down his personal ‘diktats’ regarding the demotion of former head of Karachi police force.
“The federal information minister better not meddle in the provincial affairs”, Memon said unleashing a counterblast to the former’s statement.
Earlier on Friday, acclaiming his services in the line of duty, Minister for Information, Broadcasting & National Heritage, Pervaiz Rashid, regretted Shahid Hayat’s removal as Additional Inspector General of Police (AIGP) Karachi.
“Given the circumstances, Hayat should not have been dislodged from such an important position. I am requesting Chief Minister Sindh, Syed Qaim Ali Shah, to give Hayat’s case a serious second thought because he is a good cop”, said he.
Calling Rashid a case of ‘anxiety disorder’, Memon warned him to mind his own business.
“Sindh government is alive to its responsibilities. It will not tolerate any interference from the federation in any of its matters”, said Memon.
He also made it clear that Hayat was removed on the orders of Supreme Court of Pakistan.
Four Additional Inspector Generals of Police (AIGPs), including Hayat, and six Deputy Inspector Generals (DIGs) of Police were kicked downstairs from their posts by the government of Sindh on Thursday.
