Khosa sacks two PML-N officials for indiscipline
By Qamar Jabbar
LAHORE: Sardar Zulfiqar Ali Khan Khosa, Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) provincial chief organiser, allegedly sacked two secretariat officials for leaking information to Khwaja Saad Rafique, former secretary general, PML-N sources told Daily Times on Monday.
They said that Mr Khosa had sacked Muhammad Nasir Khan, Punjab PML-N media secretary, and office clerk Guddu Shah for allegedly passing on privileged information to Rafique, who was suspended on charges of criticising the policies of Mian Nawaz Sharif and Shahbaz Sharif, PML-N president.
However, Mr Khosa said that the officials were removed from office because of negligence. He said that the Rafique matter was related only to the central leadership, which had issued him show cause notice and later suspended him for three months.
They said that senior party leaders, including Chaudhry Nisar Ali Khan, Rana Tanveer Hussain, Sadiqul Farooq and Mr Khosa, were against reappointing Rafique as Punjab general secretary and Guddu Shah and Nasir Khan had informed him about this. They said that another provincial secretariat official, Zareen Khan, had taped telephone conversations between them and Rafique and forwarded them to Mr Khosa.
Rafique refused comment saying only that it would have been better had they not been sacked.
