LAHORE– The Punjab government has asked civil servants at every level to file affidavit clarifying that they are not dual nationality holders.

Well placed sources say that in line with the federal government’s requirement from all the provinces, the Punjab government has asked the public servants to come clean on their nationality and inform in black and white whether they hold nationality of any country other than Pakistan.

Sources reveal another development is that Punjab Assembly Speaker Rana Muhammad Iqbal Khan, in the spirit of Supreme Court decisions on dual nationality, has also urged the members who stood disqualified or voluntarily resigned for having nationality of two countries to pay back the money they received from the national exchequer under the head of salary, allowances, TA / DA and so on during the period of membership.
