Sindh Cheif Minister Syed Qaim Ali Shah is likely to tender his resignation during the next 48 hours.
According to a sources in the Pakistan People’s Party (PPP), Murad Ali Shah is likely to replace Qaim Ali Shah as the Sindh chief minister.
Earlier, during a meeting in Dubai on Sunday, the party’s top leadership decided to bring changes in the Sindh cabinet, including bringing in a new chief minister.
PPP Spokesperson Senator Farhatullah Babar said the decision about changes in the Sindh cabinet was taken during a meeting of PPP leaders with party Chairman Bilawal Bhutto Zardari and former president Asif Ali Zardari in Dubai. Sindh chief Minister Qaim Ali Shah was also present during the meeting.
Bilawal is scheduled to return to Karachi early this week after which he will meet PPP’s Sindh leaders and MPAs before finalising changes in the provincial cabinet.
Murad Ali Shah’s name had long been finalised as Sinch chief minister but was pending as the PPP co-chairman, Asif Zardari, wanted Qaim Ali Shah to continue.
Sources in the PPP claim Murad Ali Shah has proven his worth for a long time as a good administrator and also has an unblemished past. He has full backing from Bilawal Bhutto Zardari.
