After the approval of Prime Minister Imran Khan, Minister of State for Narcotics Shehryar Afridi has been removed from the post.
The Cabinet Secretariat has issued a notification to de-notify Shehryar Afridi. It may be recalled that even earlier, the Prime Minister had withdrawn the portfolio from Shahriar Afridi.
However, he was reinstated a few days later. The Prime Minister took action after the report on the flour and sugar crisis came to light in April this year.
Meanwhile, Senator Azam Swati, the Federal Minister for Parliamentary Affairs, was given the portfolio of Narcotics Control in place of Shehryar Afridi.
Earlier in April this year, Federal government appointed Shehryar Afridi as the chairman of the Parliamentary Special Committee on Kashmir.
Shehryar Khan Afridi Afridi replaced Syed Fakhar Imam who has been heading the committee since 2019.
Shehryar Khan Afridi served as the Minister of State for Interior from 31 August 2018 to 18 April 2019. He has been a member of the National Assembly of Pakistan since August 2018.
