Special Assistant to the Prime Minister (SAPM) on Power Tabish Gauhar has resigned from his post, sources said on Thursday.

They said he sent his resignation to Prime Minister Imran Khan via WhatsApp earlier this week. Tabish Gauhar was appointed as the SAPM on October 1. He had served as the chairman and CEO for K-Electric for seven years.

He stepped down as director, chief executive officer and chairman of KE’s board in 2015. Sources said Gauhar, who served as the chief executive officer of K-Electric before his stint as the PM’s aide, was “unhappy over unnecessary interference” in the power ministry.

Besides, they said, he had put forward proposals in several meetings, which were not implemented. Last year in October, the prime minister had appointed him as his aide on power.

The Cabinet Division had issued a notification, which reads the premier “has been pleased to appoint Mr Tabish Gauhar as Special Assistant to the Prime Minister on Power with immediate effect”.
