ISLAMABAD: A meeting of the cabinet chaired by Prime Minister Imran Khan on Tuesday gave its nod to a proposal seeking to replace Punjab chief secretary and police chief.
Kamran Ali Afzal, a BPS-22 officer of the Pakistan Administrative Service, will replace Jawad Rafique Malik, also a PAS in the same grade, as the new boss of the provincial bureaucracy and Rao Sardar Ali Khan, a Police Service of Pakistan officer in BPS-22, will take Inam Ghani’s place to lead the force.
Last week, Chief Minister Usman Buzdar had recommended three names each for the new chief secretary and the Inspector General of Police to Prime Minister Imran Khan for selecting any of them.
For the office of the chief secretary, the chief minister had recommended the names of Cabinet Secretary Ahmed Nawaz Sukhera, Kamran Ali Afzal and Board of Revenue Member Babar Hayat Tarrar. For police chief, his picks were Khan, Additional Inspector General of Police (South) Zafar Iqbal and Mohsin Hassan Butt.
Establishment Division is expected to issue a notification in this regard soon.
