Minister for Inter-Provincial Coordination Riaz Pirzada resigned from his post on Friday, citing reservations against the suspension of Director General Pakistan Sports Board Dr Akhtar Nawaz Ganjera as the reason behind his decision, DawnNews reported.
Ganjera enjoys support from Pirzada, who has decided to take up the matter with the Prime Minister.
“I have been disrespected enough by the prime minister’s principle secretary,” Pirzada said. “I will not be disrespected more and will not retract my resignation.”
In his resignation to the prime minister, a copy of which is available with DawnNews, Pirzada said:
Pirzada, while visiting the Sports Board in Islamabad, announced that he had officially handed in his resignation.
According to DawnNews, Pirzada alleged that there is high-level corruption in all parts of the government, adding, “I will not say anything about the prime minister’s situation at the moment.”
