Renowned guitarist Salman Ahmad has been appointed focal person to Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) chairman Imran Khan on culture.

The Junoon founding member shared the update on his Twitter handle on Tuesday, saying he was "deeply inspired and motivated on receiving this important responsibility".

Ahmad emerged as a staunch supporter of the former premier following the top court's ruling that set aside then National Assembly Deputy Speaker Qasim Suri’s decision to dismiss the no-trust resolution against the former and the dissolution of the parliament's lower house earlier this year.

In a tweet, the singer had called the decision a “sham, a mockery of justice and a sinister plot to embolden convicted criminals to begin their loot and plunder.”

Interestingly, in 2018, Ahmad had vowed to no longer justify Imran Khan's decisions after the latter welcomed late renowned televangelist Dr Aamir Liaquat to the party’s fold.
