Punjab chief secretary surrenders all powers to CM Buzdar
The Chief Minister Office retained all the powers executing all important decisions of transfers and postings.
All secretaries, commissioners and deputy commissioners are now being posted on the recommendations of the Chief Minister's Office sidelining the top bureaucrat of the province, the TV channel reported.
Reportedly, Chief Secretary Jawad Rafique Malik's involvement in the high-level transfer/posting process has been confined to few postings.
“All powers of transfers/postings of top bureaucrats are being executed by the Chief Minister's Office,” the TV channel reported.
The ‘helpless’ Chief Secretary has given to the chief minister a ‘free hand’ for intervention in the bureaucratic matters.
