KARACHI: The top leadership of the Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) has decided to shake up the Sindh cabinet and take action against corrupt officers in the provincial bureaucracy, sources told Daily Express.

A special meeting of the PPP leadership, co-chaired by Chairperson Bilawal Bhutto Zardari and Co-Chairperson Asif Ali Zardari in Dubai Tuesday evening, expressed dissatisfaction over the performance of some of the provincial ministries and departments.

The meeting, attended by Sindh Chief Minister Qaim Ali Shah, Information Minister Sharjeel Inam Memon, Finance Minister Syed Murad Ali Shah, MNA Faryal Talpur and Senator Rehman Malik, reviewed the overall performance of the Sindh government.

It also reviewed the performance of the provincial ministries and government departments. According to sources, the meeting expressed disappointment over not removing the inefficient or corrupt officers from their posts.  The meeting also exchanged views on the forthcoming local bodies’ elections in Sindh and Punjab. The leadership directed the local leadership to devise a strategy for the party’s active and successful participation in the polls. Chief Minister Shah is expected to make changes in the provincial set-up after his return from Dubai. He is also likely to induct new faces in the provincial cabinet.

S.R.H. Hashmi | 8 years ago | Reply According to the news report, being dissatisfied with their performance, Peoples Party meeting in Dubai has decided on reshuffling in ministries and departments. And these changes would be made after Chief Minister Syed Qaim Ali Shah returns to Pakistan. And that means Qaim Ali Shan Is there for life or at least for the foreseeable future. As for other changes, these can only be made from within the available pool of ‘talent’, and for that very reason, it does not offer much hope. As for ending for corruption in departments, well, it was reported sometime back that a top official used to pass on a certain sum to Bilawal House on regular basis. Now if all corruption is eliminated, where would the money come to maintain the Bilawal Houses and mansions all over the world, and to sustain the royal style, with an interior-Sindh based party holding its meetings in Dubai, and participants coming from as far as UK.
