LAHORE (Monitoring Desk)- PTI leader Firdous Ashiq Awan has been removed from the position of Federal Information Minister. Now a new responsibility has been given to her. Dr. Firdous Ashiq Awan has been appointed as Special Assistant to Punjab Sardar Usman Bazdar, Chief Minister for Information. Dr Firdous Ashiq Awan, the senior PTI official, was dismissed from the role of Special Assistant for Information and Broadcasting in April. The role was then handed over to Lieutenant General (retd) Asim Saleem Bajwa by Prime Minister Imran Khan. Who, a few days ago, resigned from the post.
It should be remembered that just as this face is not new to those who see it, so is this duty not new to Firdous Aashiq Awan. It may be remembered that when Firdous Ashiq Awan was removed from the post of Federal Minister of Information, he had claimed that many people were interfering in the ministry and Azam Khan, Principal Secretary to the Prime Minister, called him and demanded his resignation. Firdous Ashiq Awan, former Special Assistant for Information, decided to turn his duty on the Prime Minister’s Principal Secretary.
In an interview with a private Television channel, he also justified the charges against him, saying that news was being spread against him. Government reports, on the other hand, have said that Firdous Ashiq Awan ‘s argument is baseless.
The Prime Minister ‘s Principal Secretary has no other authority, so it is not necessary for him to willingly resign or de-notify any politician of his appointment. Government sources claimed that several PM’s Principal Secretary’s rejection of cases targeted at punishing PM that are not explicitly criticized.
It should be noted that when Firdous Ashiq Awan was suspended from the federal post, Imran Khan, a well-known anchor, said that he had been removed from the post because of suspected corruption. That Dr. Firdous Ashiq Awan denied. Now, new duties have been assigned to Dr. Firdous Ashiq Awan.
