Taj Haider relinquishes media coordination
Karachi: Provincial General Secretary PPP and Sindh government’s media coordinator Taj Haider said that he has relinquished media coordination as the incumbent Information Minister Sharjeel Memon would be dealing the same.
He, however, said that he would continue to work as coordinator of the provincial government for dealing with a host of issues ranging from census and flood rehabilitation to development.
