A comprehensive strategy will be devised to identify and transfer government officials of ill-repute across provincial departments, said Khyber Pakhtunkhwa (K-P) Chief Minister (CM) Pervez Khattak on Saturday.
According to a statement issued from the Home and Tribal Affairs Department, action would be taken under the relevant legal framework.
Government officials who are proved to be involved in wrongdoing will be transferred from important positions to those of lesser significance. July 26 has been stipulated as the deadline for this exercise.
The statement added the home department has already collected the required information from its subdivisions and the data will be presented before the K-P chief secretary.
Meanwhile, the K-P government has asked the IGP and commissioner of Peshawar to expedite the payment of compensation to victims of the Peshawar Judicial Complex bomb blast and to award the Tamgha-e-Shujaat to the late constable Wajid Ali.
