PESHAWAR: According to a notification issued by the Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa government on Friday evening, the portfolio of provincial spokesperson has been withdrawn from Shoukat Yousafzai.

Yousafzai though remains as the provincial minister for health.

On the other hand, on the directives of Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Chairman Imran Khan, the K-P Chief Minister Pervaiz Khattak has handed the portfolio of information ministry to Provincial minister Shah Farman.

Farman is the incumbent minister for Public Health Engineering.

In addition, MPA Ishtiaq Urmar has been appointed as the provincial spokesperson of PTI.

Please learn the difference between a minister, an advisor, and a special assistant. You seem to be calling everyone in the government a minister, when that is not the case. . Secondly the very fact that the KP government website shows that most ministers are holding multiple portfolios shows that the cabinet size is kept small, within in the limits of the constitution.

The PTI's large cabinet is totally confused just like its Lifetime Chairman Imran Khan Niazi. . Shaukat Yousafzai simply reflects the confused mindset that PTI possesses. Many of his statements were not only funny but also self-contradictory . He should have been removed when "protest was organised in Shergarh against health and information minister Shaukat Yousafzai for trivialising Tuesday’s suicide attack, which killed 37 people in the area. Residents along with supporters of Aman Jirga Jalala said PTI Imran Khan should remove Yousafzai from the provincial cabinet." But then the sole-decision maker and Lifetime Chairman PTI Imran Khan Niazi was on his "private" vacations in UK and the decision got delayed!
