Motorways IG removed over congratulatory ad


The government on Wednesday removed Motorways inspector general (IG) for issuing congratulatory advertisements on state expenses.

Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif has already barred ministries and autonomous bodies from issuing such advertisements.

A few days ago, the government had issued show-case notices to National Bank of Pakistan (NBP) president and Motorway IG Zafar Abbas over congratulatory advertisements on Nawaz Sharif’s election as prime minister.

However, on Wednesday, Nawaz formally removed Abbas from his office and ordered him to report the Establishment Division.

Furthermore, Nawaz warned of action against those violating his directions, saying that the head of the department would have to reimburse the amount spent on such advertisements.
