- He also warned of serious outcomes if allegations were found true.
Prime Minister Imran Khan has chaired a meeting of Federal Cabinet today and has condemned the act of writing a letter by State Minister Zartaj Gul Wazir. PM has said that none of the ministers will write any letter for any transfer, the appointment to any of the departments. “There will be no compromise on the culture of corruption and favoritism”, he further said.
Imran Khan has also demanded the record of Shabnam Gul’s appointment from NACTA. He also warned of repercussions in case merit was compromised in the appointment for the said post.
Earlier, Zartaj Gul Wazir wrote a letter referring to the appointment of her sister against the post of NACTA director.
A copy of the letter was circulated on social media and it started a harsh criticism to PTI and Imran Khan. Zartaj Gul Wazir is currently serving as a State Minister for Climate Change and her sister Shabnam Gul was working as an assistant professor in Lahore College University prior to her appointment as Director NACTA on May 22.
