Soon after Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz won May 11 general elections, certain government departments and organizations spent hefty amounts on paid advertisement to welcome the new government. PM Nawaz acknowledged the gesture but took strict notice against officials who played a role in spending government money to achieve personal goals. He ordered the money spent on these advertisements to be deducted from the salaries of these government officers.
TIP acknowledged the decision of PM Nawaz alleging it would put off the deep-rooted sycophancy in Pakistan bureaucracy and motivate the government sector employees to be more competent instead of exhausting their energy in point-scoring process. Syed Adil Gilani, adviser to TIP, requested in the letter to take actions against both the heads.
