PM Imran Khan removed Federal Minister from his post. The federal government has once again removed Shehryar Khan Afridi from his portfolios where he served as minister of state for states and frontier regions (SAFRON) and of narcotics control.
After the approval of the Prime Minister, Shehryar Afridi has been de-notified while the Cabinet Division has issued notification of the return of portfolios of both the Ministries.
Shehryar Afridi will continue to work as chairman of the Kashmir Committee. It may be recalled that on May 13, Shehryar Afridi was elected chairman of the Parliamentary Special Committee on Kashmir.
Shehryar Afridi was elected in the meeting of the Parliamentary Kashmir Committee after PM Imran Khan’s proposal. The committee members of the government and opposition parties could not agree on the name of Shehryar Khan Afridi for the chairmanship of the committee.
Opposition members walked out of the committee in protest, but Shehryar Afridi was elected chairman of the committee by a majority vote.
