Imran Khan lashes out at PPP for replacing IG Sindh
TALAGANG: Chairman Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Imran Khan on Sunday lashed out at the Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) and said inspector general of Sindh police has been changed because he did not let them commit wrong, ARY News reported.
“We have no future till we get united to fight against corruption. Police may only work efficiently when there is no political interference,” he said while addressing a public rally in Talagang.
He said the PTI government in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa (KP) had brought reforms in police. Hiring in police were made on merit. If anyone wanted to see real change just compare KP police with others. The PTI posted an honest IG in KP who disciplined the institution, he added.
Upon request of the Sindh government, Allah Dino Khawaja has been relieved from the post of inspector general of Sindh police on Saturday. Additional Inspector General of Sindh Police Sardar Abdul Majeed Dasti has taken temporary and additional charge of IG Sindh police.
Khawaja was removed as the IG Sindh because he was stopping others from committing illegal activities, said the PTI chief.
