LAHORE: The Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) government has decided to give another ministry to its ally Pakistan Muslim League Quaid (PML-Q) in the province after agreement reached between the two parties.
According to sources, the new minister would take oath at Governor House tomorrow (Friday) at 10am. Punjab Governor Chaudhry Muhammad Sarwar will administer oath to new minister Bao Rizwan.
Sources said that the provincial government has also addressed other concerns of the PML-Q and the government wont interfere in the matters of PML-Q ministers.
It is pertinent to mention here that the political situation deteriorated when Punjab Minister for Mines and Minerals Ammar Yasir, the lone minister of the PML-Q in the Punjab cabinet, tendered his resignation on Friday to Chaudhry Shujaat Hussain and Elahi, only a few days after PTI’s federal information minister Fawad Chaudhry talked about creating a forward bloc in the PML-Q.
Besides, following the meeting, Elahi revealed that his party was to be given two federal and two Punjab ministries. Responding to the speaker, Buzdar said he was not aware about the matter and it would be discussed with the Prime Minister Imran Khan.
