ISLAMABAD: Prime Minister has accepted the resignation of Prime Minister’s Special Assistant on Power (SAPM) Tabish Gauhar.
Sources have informed that Gauhar resigned from his designation due to external interference in his job. Gauhar would be the second SAPM on power during the two and a half year tenure of the Khan administration to leave the office.
In November 2020, Prime Minister’s SAPM on Power Syed Shahzad Qasim, tendered his resignation a few days after Prime Minister Imran Khan asked him to focus on Coordination of Marketing and Development of Mineral Resources.
The sources said, Gauhar, a technocrat, was disturbed after an inquiry into the petrol crisis undertaken by the Federal Investigation Agency (FIA) cited M/s Byco refinery in the scam. The FIA recommended punitive action against Byco Refinery and further probe into its suspicious/illegal activities.
An official confirmed that Tabish Gauhar was not coming to the office for the last few days. Another source said, he was last seen a week ago on Friday.
