ISLAMABAD, 12 JUNE: Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif today removed a senior Pakistani official from his post for issuing advertisements to the media to congratulate the PML-N on its victory in the 11 May general elections. Mr Sharif was not satisfied with an explanation submitted by National Highway and Motorway Police chief Zafar Abbas Luk regarding an advertisement he had issued to several dailies and removed him from his post today. The Premier further directed authorities to take disciplinary action against Mr Luk, officials said. Mr Sharif had earlier taken strict notice of advertisements issued by government departments and organisations to congratulate him and the PML-N on their victory in the polls. He said such advertisements caused a loss to the national exchequer. pti
