Moreover, Senator Raza Haroon of MQM has been made special adviser to the Sindh CM. The oath was administered by Sindh Governor Dr Ishratul Ebad. It must be noted that six members of the Sindh Assembly, including four ministers, have tendered their resignations because they held dual nationalities.
