Punjab governor Chaudhry Sarwar decides to resign


Punjab governor Chaudhry Sarwar has decided to play a more active role in Pakistani politics from the PML-N platform, sources told Daily Express.

“Sarwar will resign as Punjab governor and assume responsibilities in the centre in a few days,” a person privy to the development confided subject to anonymity. “With this the rumours of Sarwar leaving PML-N, or joining PTI, or PAT, have died,” the source said talking to the Daily Express.

The fact is that the PML-N leadership is ready to give more important responsibilities to Sarwar, the person said.

Sources said that Sarwar, a former British MP, who gave up his British nationality to serve Pakistan on the invitation of Sharif brothers, is likely to get the charge of the ministry of human resource and overseas Pakistanis.

Chaudhry Sarwar has been successful in getting the GSP Plus status, a trade benefit, from the EU for Pakistan.

Sources said that Sarwar has informed PM Nawaz Sharif of his decision and important developments are expected in the next week.

Good. Ch.Sarwar has ultimately resigned from nonfunctional, anti-poor and lootmar based Government.

This Government wants to keep all budget of Punjab in one hand. There is no share of poor in federal and Punjab budget.

They don't want to change police, judiciary, health, education in favour of poor.

Pmln has now zero credibility all they possess is just positions for their kashmiri background politicians to serve them.
