Murad Ali Shah to continue as Sindh CM, PPP decides

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.

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.
