KARACHI: The newly elected Chief Minister for Sindh Murad Ali Shah had the barriers around the CM House removed, following up with his claim he does not want to give in to the VIP culture.

His move on Saturday, the first day since he assumed office, was widely praised by citizens on social media.

"Those who know me, know that I wake up at 8 a.m. and reach my office at 9 a.m. Today is Saturday, so (bureaucracy) is safe. From Monday, I will be in office by 9 and those who arrive late will see,” Shah said.

"Alone I can go fast, together we can go far," he added, demanding support from his fellow lawmakers.
