Web Desk: After Imran Khan’s announcement of separation from the assemblies, the administrative machinery in Punjab and Khyber Pakhtunkhwa has also become confused. According to sources, high-level officers in both the provinces have restricted themselves to day-to-day office affairs, keeping development, finance and recruitment issues aside. In this situation, even though it is an election year, the provincial governments are facing severe difficulties and with each passing day, policy matters are stalled due to new uncertainty.
It should be noted that PTI Chairman Imran Khan announced his resignation from the Provincial Assemblies of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa and Punjab during a meeting in Rawalpindi on November 26. Since then, resignations have been shared in Punjab and Khyber Pakhtunkhwa by PTI provincial ministers and MPs in confirmation of the resignation announcement, which has resulted in an administrative crisis along with the ongoing economic crisis in the country. An officer of the federal government said that the announcement of the dissolution of the assembly by the top officials of the provincial governments, i.e. the chief minister and the provincial ministers, has been taken administratively seriously and it is creating a high-level administrative problem.
Due to uncertainty, financial affairs, recruitment and transfer of senior officers in both provinces have been suspended unofficially. Due to the uncertainty of the government, the work on development issues has also slowed down. Sources said that due to the administrative and political crisis in both provinces, the affairs of the federal government are also being severely affected and apart from routine office affairs, the officers of important departments are not signing a single paper related to policy matters.
