Special Assistant to the Prime Minister (SAPM) Tabish Gauhar has resigned from his post.
According to the details, sources said that Tabish Gauhar sent his resignation to Prime Minister Imran Khan via WhatsApp earlier this week.
He was appointed as PM’s aide on power on October 2nd, 2020. A notification, issued by the Cabinet Division on that day, said the prime minister has been pleased to appoint Mr. Tabish Gauhar as Special Assistant to the Prime Minister on Power with immediate effect.
He resigned from the K-Electric in 2015 citing personal reason after working at the metropolis’ sole power utility for over seven years.
Gauhar is credited for making significant progress in key operational and financial indicators and generated a profit for the first time in 17 years in 2012.
In November 2020, Prime Minister’s SAPM on Power Syed Shahzad Qasim, tendered his resignation a few days after Prime Minister asked him to focus on Coordination of Marketing and Development of Mineral Resources.
Shahzad Qasim had resigned on personal grounds, said sources. The Cabinet Division issued a notification accepting the resignation of Shahzad Syed Qasim.
In September 2020, Qasim was replaced by Tabish Gauhar as the premier’s special assistant on power – just three months after his appointment.
