PM Imran Khan likely to abolish unnecessary ministry during the cabinet meeting today: Sources
ISLAMABAD - PM Imran Khan is likely to abolish the Ministry of Capital Administration and Development Division (CADD) in the Cabinet meeting summoned today.
According to sources, the meeting would be chaired by Prime Minister Imran Khan, where institutions that come under CADD would be handed over to the cabinet division.
The division, which is the federal government’s administrative unit that oversees Islamabad’s educational and health institutions, will be given to Adviser to Prime Minister on Parliamentary Affairs Babar Awan.
The CADD was created in 2011 after the devolution of over 20 ministries to all four federating units through 18th Constitutional Amendment with an aim to oversee the Islamabad Capital Territory’s educational, health, population and social welfare organisations.
Initially, it got the control of 22 organisations related to ICT but later, the capital’s social welfare and child welfare development, FG Polytechnic Institute of Women, the departments of libraries, archaeology and museums, population welfare, Zakat and Ushr, the training and education and rehabilitation of disabled and charitable endowment were also placed under it.
