ISLAMABAD, (SANA): Spokesperson to the President Senator Farhatullah Babar has deplored the allegation leveled by former Chief Minister Mian Shahbaz Sharif that the President was involved in making postings and transfers of senior officials in the government as “not only absolutely baseless but also highly irresponsible”.
The President has nothing do with any recent postings and transfers in the federal and provincial bureaucracy and all postings and transfers have been made by the caretaker governments without reference to or interference from the Presidency, he said.
Farhatullah Babar said that the Presidency completely dissociates itself from any recent posting and transfer in the bureaucracy. If the government in waiting has some reservations with some recent postings and transfers it may ask the caretakers to review its decisions but not malign the President, he said.
The Presidency will be as much detached and unmoved if these postings were cancelled or reviewed as it has been when these were first made, Farhatullah Babar said.
