Sindh govt recommends Thebo, Mahar and Fazal for IG Sindh police while the cabinet had already approved transfer of Kaleem Imam as IG.
Sindh govt recommends Thebo
The Services department secretary’s letter dated January 20 contained name of Ghulam Qadir Thebo as first nominee.
Sindh government’s letter to Establishment Division’s secretary also carried the name of Kamran Fazal.
The senior most grade 22 Mushtaq Mahar named third and last in the list of three. Sindh government preferred grade 21 officers to him.
Deadlock since Jan.15
However, GTV reported on January 15 about these three names. Sindh cabinet had approved transfer of Kaleem Imam as IG police.
Sindh-Centre deadlock over IG police Kaleem Imam persists despite denials from provincial government political officials.
GTV already reported on Saturday Jan18, 2020 that federal government has told Sindh Kaleem Imam would stay as IGP.
But, Sindh Minister Saeed Ghani and adviser to the Chief Minister Murtaza Wahab made claims vice versa.
Even today, Minister Ghani asserted no deadlock while making another claim on the career of Kaleem Imam. He further said that it remains to be seen which province would agree to accept him.
Moreover, Saeed Ghani told the media in Karachi that the issue would be resolved within a day or two.
The last answer from Centre
But, federal government had told the Sindh government that Kaleem Imam would stay as IG Sindh until appointment of his successor.
Establishment Division had said this in a reply to Sindh government’s recommendation for transfer of Kaleem Imam.
Sources disclosed that establishment division informed that federal government was considering in this regard.
However, it also informed that that Kaleem Imam would continue as IG until further orders.
Federal government will not appoint anyone as acting IG police in the meantime.
