Nawaz Sharif issues order to reduce PMO staff by 30%
Islamabad: Pakistan Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif has issued orders to reduce the staff of his office by 30 per cent and to cancel a project to beautify roads leading to his official residence.
Sharif, who recently assumed office for a record third term with a pledge to cut unnecessary expenses, gave directions to officials to cut the staff of the Prime Minister`s Office by one-third so that administrative expenses can be curtailed.
The Premier on Monday issued directions for the immediate cancelation of a tender issued by Capital Development Authority for beautification of roads leading to the Prime Minister`s House.
"The Prime Minister took the decision in view of his government`s policy of judicious use of public resources and adopting austerity measures. He said that resources must be used for the welfare of the people and not wasted," said a statement issued by Sharif`s office.
The project to beautify the roads leading to the Prime Minister`s House, located in the high security Red Zone in the heart of Islamabad, was launched by the previous Pakistan People`s Party-led government.
