PTI government responds over media reports of sacking Information Minister
ISLAMABAD - Fawad Chaudhry will continue working as the minister for federal information and broadcasting, says Special Assistant to Prime Minister on Media Affairs Yousaf Baig Mirza on Thursday.
In a statement issued today in Islamabad, the PM’s media adviser ruled out rumours that PTI leader Babar Awan is being assigned the portfolio of the information ministry in Chaudhry’s place.
Some sections of the media published reports that the information ministry’s portfolio will be taken away from Chaudhry and he will be assigned another ministry.
Dr Awan also denied such media reports. “The reports that I am being given responsibility of the information ministry are not correct,” said Dr Awan in his media talk after he called on Prime Minister Imran Khan today.
“I met Imran Khan but his [Chaudhry’s] replacement wasn’t discussed with me.” He said only legal and constitutional affairs were discussed during the meeting.
