KARACHI: Sindh Chief Minister’s Adviser on Information Murtaza Wahab on Monday refuted reports that the provincial governor had been removed from the apex committee.
The 23rd session of the apex committee was held at the Sindh CM House earlier today and was attended by the chief secretary, corps commander Karachi, DG Rangers, IG Sindh and other officials. However, Governor Sindh Imran Ismail was not in attendance.
In the past, the Sindh CM and governor used to co-chair the apex committee meetings.
Earlier reports had emerged that the Sindh governor had been removed from the apex committee. However, Ismail had said that he got no official notification in this regard. “If I have been removed from the apex committee then that is not a good thing,” he had said.
However, speaking to the media after the apex committee meeting, Wahab said, “The notion that the governor Sindh has been removed from the committee is wrong. The governor is not a member of the apex committee and used to be called as an honourary member.”
