Defence secretary’s removal is routine matter: Naveed


The defence secretary’s removal by the prime minister is a routine matter and there is no reason to panic, President Asif Ali Zardari’s Punjab Coordinator Naveed Chaudhry said on Wednesday. Talking to Pakistan Today, Naveed said that the decision was not taken in haste but the PM took the decision on a summary moved earlier. He said that if any official took action against the chief executive on his own then it was the PM’s right to take his decision.
Naveed said that the defence minister said that the defence secretary took the decision on his own. He said that show cause notice was issued to the defence secretary and now he was removed according to law. Naveed said that only the decision’s timing was creating confusion in the public. He said that some people were trying to create confusion.
