ISLAMABAD - Marvi Memon to be removed as chairperson of the Benazir Income Support Programme (BISP).

According to officials, Caretaker Prime Minister retired Justice Nasirul Mulk has sent a summary to President Mamnoon Hussain, suggesting that Memon be removed as BISP chairperson.

The PPP and the Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf have been demanding her removal as she was an MNA of the previous ruling party, PML-N, and was appointed as the head of BISP by ousted prime minister Nawaz Sharif.

Memon had been elected to the National Assembly on a reserved seat for women from Sindh in 2013.
