All such workers to be removed from LG departments despite any stay orders granted by courts.

KARACHI: Sindh Minister for Local Government and Information Sharjeel Inaam Memon while speaking about the ongoing “ghost employees” operation said that all such employees shall be removed from local government departments at all cost, adding that despite any stay orders granted by the courts, the campaign against them will not end.

Memon stated “it was unfortunate that although a plan was chalked out for existing local government employees to get salaries through banks that the courts issued a stay order till April, 15.”

He said we will reply to court in this regard and vowed to eliminate all ghost employees at any cost.

The minister also pledged that if he failed to clean up the local government department then he would resign.

Addressing these issues during a cleanliness and tree plantation campaign held at Karachi Cantonment Railway Station on Monday where the minister personally took part, he said that dirt which had piled up over the past few years cannot be cleaned in a mere few weeks, adding that the cleanliness campaign must continue till the entire province is completely neat and tidy.

“We are determined to make Sindh green and peaceful and will not tolerate any kind of hurdle in this regard” adding that the “Rangers, police and law enforcement agencies and government are on the same page”.
