ISLAMABAD: Prime Minister Imran Khan has appointed Syed Zahoor Agha as the new Governor of Balochistan.
Agha Zahoor worked as Senior Vice President of PTI in Balochistan and the party organizer in the province. He has remained a member of CEC PTI Balochistan. He is also former the former Chairman All Pakistan Flour Mills Association.
It may be mention that Syed Zahoor Agha had withdrew his nomination papers for the Senate elections earlier in March. He was sole ticket holder of the PTI Senate election in Balochistan.
Agha was awarded PTI ticket after the party withdrew its ticket from business tycoon Mohammad Abdul Qadir following strong opposition to his nomination from the Balochistan chapter of the party.
The spokesman for the Balochistan government, Liaquat Shahwani had said that Agha had withdrawn from the contest in favour of the Balochistan Awami Party (BAP). He said that BAP President Jam Kamal Alyani had requested the PTI leadership for withdrawing its candidate in favour of his party.
Agha said that he had withdrawn from the contest on the order of Prime Minister Imran Khan and had accepted the decision. He said that he had no personal desire to get a Senate ticket and had submitted his nomination papers on the orders of the prime minister.
