Murad Ali Shah to continue as Sindh CM, PPP decides

KARACHI: Pakistan Peoples Party leadership has decided that Chief Minister Sindh Murad Ali Shah will continue serving in the office, as the ruling Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf reportedly increases efforts for a change of leadership in the province. This was said by provincial minister Nasir Hussain Shah in a media talk after a meeting of the chief minister and PPP Chairman Bilawal Bhutto. Murad was among over 150 people placed on the Exit Control List (ECL) in a probe into fake accounts cases being heard by the Supreme Court. Blasting PTI for "horse-trading", Hussain said a government which came into power through dishonest means cannot snatch the government from PPP. He also said that placing Murad Ali Shah’s name on ECL is aimed at depriving the province of its CPEC share. PM calls Sindh MPA Ali Gohar as PTI seeks allies to outnumber PPP Prime Minister Imran Khan earlier today called Sindh lawmaker Ali Gohar Mehar to discuss the political dynamics of the province. A spokesperson of PTI Sindh said that the premier expressed his reservations over the current political situation in the province. The prime minister has also accepted Mehar's invitation to visit Sindh in the coming days. Meanwhile, it appears that the telephonic call with Prime Minister Imran has raised the political capital of Mehar, as high-level party leaders immediately arrived in Ghotki to meet the local leader. Governor Imran Ismail, State Interior Minister Shehryar Afridi and Haleem Adil Sheikh met with him lately to discuss the current political situation.
