ISLAMABAD - *Pakistan finance secretary Yunis Dhaga likely to be sacked, sources have revealed.*

The government has decided to remove Finance Secretary Younus Secretary Dhaga from the post, it was learnt on Wednesday.

According to sources, the government will most likely hand over the post to incumbent Cabinet Secretary Naveed Kamran Baloch owing to his “closeness” with Adviser to Prime Minister on Finance Abdul Hafeez Shaikh.

“The finance adviser is not comfortable with Younus Dhaga, which is why the latter is being sidelined from the ministry affairs,” sources claimed.

They further informed that the finance adviser has also rehired a retired government official (Mr Taj) as senior private secretary (SPS) and has made him incharge of the Finance Minister’s Office.
