 PM Shehbaz Sharif Initiates Major Government Restructuring

In a significant move, Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif has decided to abolish five key ministries and departments as part of a comprehensive government restructuring effort.

The targeted ministries include Information Technology, Kashmir Affairs, Ministry of Safeguard, Ministry of Industries and Production, and Ministry of Health Services.

To facilitate the restructuring process, the Institutional Reforms Cell has been established, and it has already begun working on “rightsizing”.

Within a week, recommendations have been sought from the five federal ministries, indicating a swift and efficient approach to the reforms.

To ensure a seamless transition, a committee comprising Finance Minister Muhammad Aurangzeb and Member of National Assembly Bilal Azhar Kiani has been formed to explain the role of provincial ministries.

In a related development, the federal cabinet has formally approved the abolition of the Ministry of Planning, Development, and Special Initiatives.

Furthermore, Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif has instructed the relevant authorities to provide immediate relief on electricity bills and expedite work on solar tube wells.

These measures demonstrate the government’s commitment to streamlining its operations, improving efficiency, and enhancing economic stability.

The restructuring efforts come at a time when the country is facing significant economic challenges, with a mounting debt of $75 billion over the next three years.

By improving efficiency and promoting exports-led growth, the government aims to put Pakistan’s economy on a sustainable path.
