The senior officers whose services will be surrendered include grade 20 officers. Their names are Ahmed Jamal-ur-Rahman, Shariq Jamal, Sarfaraz Ahmed Faalki, Sher Akbar, Naeem Ahmad Sheikh, Iqbal Dara Dayo, Muneer Ahmad Sheikh and Amin Bukhari.

A senior officer of the Services and General Administration Department on anonymity said that it is a common practice whenever a government changes, it transfers officers on a massive scale. Chief Minister Hamza Shahbaz has also prepared lists of officers who had a close liaison with the previous Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf government and Chief Minister Sardar Usman Buzdar. The same had been done by Usman Buzdar in 2018.

It is to be recalled that there is a dispute between the Sindh government and the federal government on the transfer and posting of officers. The same case is subjudice in the apex court as well.
