The reason behind the removal of Dr. Firdous Ashiq Awan from her post has revealed. According to news details, Special Assistant for Information Firdous Ashiq Awan tried to take a 10% commission from the government’s advertising budget.
Sources said that Firdous Ashiq Awan kept more than the required number of employees on the quota of government TV. She had also kept 9 employees including two security guards without permission.
Firdous Awan had kept three vehicles that she was not allowed to use. She had also hired cleaners and gardeners from the PTV quota. According to sources, a report was submitted to Prime Minister Imran Khan and Firdous Awan was removed from her office.
The government de-notified Firdous Ashiq Awan and appointed Shibli Faraz as Federal Minister for Information while Asim Saleem Bajwa has been appointed as Special Assistant to the Prime Minister.
Minister for Science and Technology Fawad Chaudhry on social networking site Twitter congratulated Senator Shibli Faraz on his appointment as Federal Minister for Information and Asim Saleem Bajwa as Special Assistant to the Prime Minister for Information.
He said that Shibli Faraz is honorable and honest. Asim Saleem Bajwa is also a hardworking man. It may be recalled that Fawad Ch was given the ministry of Information and Technology at the start of the PTI government’s tenure. Later He was replaced by Dr. Firdous Ashiq Awan.
