Fayyaz ul Hassan has been removed as Information Minister Punjab


Lahore (Web Desk) Fayyaz ul Hassan Chohan has been removed as the information minister Punjab, media reported Monday.

Chohan  will retain his charge of the colonies department, while Firdous Ashiq Awan will become Chief Minister Punjab’s special assistant and is set to take charge of the information ministry, said a notification.

Firdous Awan had previously served  as prime minister’s special assistant on information.

Two other ministers — Punjab’s minister for Cooperatives Mehar Muhammad Aslam and provincial minister for prisons Zawar Hussain Warraich  — were also stripped of their portfolio.

This is the second time that the minister has been removed from his portfolio after the Punjab government reappointed Chohan as the provincial information minister in 2019.

He had to resign as the information minister in March over his anti-Hindu remarks.

The PTI lawmaker had come under severe criticism after a video of him making the remarks had gone viral on social media.
