This he said while presiding over a meeting in his office on Wednesday. Secretary Health Dr. Saeed Ahmed Mangnejo also attended the meeting.

He directed all officers concerned to improve efficiency of the department. Dahar further directed Secretary Health to look into the affairs of Jinnah Hospital Karachi and resolve them as soon as possible.
