Immediately after the assassination of Nawabzada Liaquat Ali Khan, Khawaja Nazimuddin’s undemocratic step from head of the State to that of Chief Executive leaving the portfolio open for a bureaucrat can hardly find any appreciable place in our history.
The result was that in 1953, the in-coming Governor General removed Khawaja Nazimuddin in a humiliating way and nominated Mohammad Ali Bogra as Prime Minister.
The new set up could not work well and he, too, met the same fate and, this time, not only the Chief Executive but along with him, the Assembly was also dismissed.
