Huge choices to be taken in following 4-5 months: Fawad Chaudhry


ISLAMABAD: Federal Minister for Science and Technology Fawad Chaudhry has said the next four to five months will be crucial as Prime Minister Imran Khan will be making major decisions.

Speaking to Geo Pakistan on Thursday, the federal minister said that the two special assistants to the prime minister — who had tendered their resignation amid criticism in the backdrop of great public scrutiny over the matter of dual nationalities — have already made their stance on the issue known.

A day earlier, Tania Aidrus and Dr Zafar Mirza tendered their resignation from their posts as the special assistants to the prime minister (SAPM) on Digital Pakistan and National Health, respectively, which were accepted by the prime minister.Chaudhry said that Aidrus resigned due to her NGO which had raised objections from critics who had alleged that there was a conflict of interest. Speaking about Dr Mirza, he said that when it came to importing medicines from India, it had more to do with the Finance Division than the health sector headed by Mirza.”Dr Zafar Mirza had nothing to do with the import of medicines from India. According to Article 91, if the prime minister agrees with your position, then you will continue to work. The prime minister has his own powers and executive authority,” he added.
