In a recent development, Prime Minister Shahbaz Sharif has taken the decision to remove Captain (Retired) Anwarul Haq from his position as the chief commissioner of Islamabad. This decision surfaced on Thursday, marking a significant change in leadership within the capital city.

The anticipated replacement for Anwarul Haq is Muhammad Ali Randhawa, a distinguished Grade 20 officer of the Pakistan Administrative Service. Randhawa’s potential appointment comes as part of the Ministry of Interior’s strategic restructuring efforts.

Ghulam Murtaza, Section Officer Administration at the Ministry of Interior, has officially communicated this decision through a letter addressed to the Secretary Establishment Division. The letter outlines the ministry’s intention to leverage the expertise of Chaudhry Muhammad Ali Randhawa, who presently serves as the Commissioner of Lahore.

Randhawa’s potential relocation to the role of Chief Commissioner of Islamabad or a key officer position within the Capital Development Authority (CDA) signifies a pivotal move in the administration of the federal capital. As these changes unfold, stakeholders await further updates on the transition and its implications for Islamabad’s governance and development landscape.
