The Financial Daily - - CONTINUATIONS -

IS­LAM­ABAD: A Pun­jab bu­reau­crat has said that the civil ser­vants will not al­low any po­lit­i­cal in­ter­fer­ence.

Shahid Hus­sain, who is the manag­ing direc­tor of the Pub­lic Pro­cure­ment Reg­u­la­tory Author­ity, re­marked that the bu­reau­crats will serve their posts legally. Hus­sain, a grade 21 of­fi­cer, is also the pres­i­dent of the Pro­vin­cial Man­age­ment Ser­vices As­so­ci­a­tion.

He was re­spond­ing to the com­ments made by In­for­ma­tion Min­is­ter Fawad Chaudhry that the bu­reau­cracy should im­ple­ment the poli­cies of the govern­ment.

"We won't be pres­surised. The prime min­is­ter had cat­e­gor­i­cally said that there will be no po­lit­i­cal in­ter­fer­ence in bu­reau­cracy," a pri­vate tele­vi­sion chan­nel quoted him as say­ing.

"We will fol­low what is writ­ten in the book and not ex­ceed our man­date."
