Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) MNA Abid Sher Ali was on Monday handed the Minister of State for Water and Power, Express News reported.  

Ali, who is the nephew of PML-N chief and incumbent Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif, was elected from NA-84 Faisalabad in the general elections in May.

It is unclear what power he will have given Khwaja Asif is the Federal Minister of Water and Power.

Asif had earlier in the month stated that he aimed to shift the country's energy mix in three years to tackle the crippling power shortages blamed for devastating the economy.

The way Mr. Sher Ali conducts himself on TV, it is very clear that his role is that of a debt collector in this ministry.
