20 January, 2020 14:41

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.

Centre disagreed with Sindh government

Federal government disagreed with Sindh government over new nominee.

The federal government recommended ex-chief of Karachi Police Dr Amir Ahmed Shaikh, Additional IG Ghulam Nabi Memon and AIG Establishment and Training Dr Aftab Ahmed Pathan.
Although adviser to the Sindh Chief Minister on Law, Barrister Murtaza Wahab claimed no difference over new IG with the Centre, the latter’s nominees showed differences.
