ISLAMABAD, APR 7 – PTI leader Fakhar Imam took an oath as the federal food security minister on Tuesday.
President Dr Arif Alvi administered the oath to Imam at Aiwan-e-Sadr in Islamabad. The oath-taking ceremony, however, included few officials due to coronavirus fears.
He was handed over the portfolio as part of another cabinet reshuffle on Monday. Former food security minister Khurso Bakhtiar, whose name came up in a sugar crisis inquiry, has been given the portfolio of economic affairs.
