Prime Minister Imran Khan will pay a visit to the Hazara families on Sunday and offer his condolences over last week’s Hazarganji suicide attack, according to Special Assistant to the Prime Minister (SAPM) on Information and Broadcasting, Dr Firdous Ashiq Awan.
Awan, in her first media talk since her appointment earlier this week, said that the prime minister will be in Quetta tomorrow to “inaugurate a housing scheme and to condole [with the victims] of the unfortunate incident”.
The newly appointed SAP also announced that Minister for Power Omar Ayub Khan is being given the additional charge of the minister of petroleum — a position held by Ghulam Sarwar Khan until the recent cabinet reshuffle.
She said that “a harmony is being created to bridge the disconnect between the people’s expectations and the government’s decisions, if there is any,” adding that “this is number one on the prime minister’s agenda now.”
Awan said that “various ministries have been given a variety of targets to provide relief to the masses, especially in the month of Ramazan.”
She said that the new finance and economic teams have been instructed to devise policies that are “aligned with the prime minister’s vision and priorities”.
