KARACHI: The Sindh government has handed a second ministry to Sharjeel Inam Memon after completing official proceedings on the day of Eid.
The Sindh government administration has issued a notification on the first day of Eid-ul-Fitr (May 3), giving Sharjeel Inam Memon additional charge of Transport and Mass Transit Department.
The notification issued by the order of Chief Secretary Sindh Dr Muhammad Sohail Rajput states that Sharjeel Inam Memon along with Sindh Ministry of Information now has additional responsibilities of Ministry of Transport.
It may be recalled that on 29th April, a senior officer of the same department Capt (retd) Abdul Sattar, PAS Officer, Grade 19, was given the responsibilities of Deputy Commissioner South along with the services of MD Sindh Mass Transit Authority, while Deputy Commissioner South Irshad Ali Sodhar was transferred to the Services General Administration Department.
On April 22, Sharjeel Memon took the oath after he was notified by the chief secretary a day earlier as part of the Sindh cabinet. Memon was assigned the portfolio of the provincial information ministry.
Sindh Acting Governor Agha Siraj Durani administered the oath to Sharjeel in the presence of Sindh Chief Minister Syed Murad Ali Shah at the Governor House.
The provincial government had de-notified Sindh Transport Minister Awais Qadir Shah as a member of the provincial cabinet to make place for Sharjeel as the Constitution limits the strength of cabinet to 18.
The portfolio of the Sindh information department was earlier with Saeed Ghani. After the re-allocation of portfolios, Ghani has retained the portfolio of the provincial labour and human resource department.
