PESHAWAR: The Khyber Pakhtunkhwa (KP) Chief Minister Mahmood Khan on Saturday removed Ajaml Wazir as an adviser to the chief minister on information and public relations over leaked audio.
Chief Minister’s Special Assistant for local government, Kamran Bangash has been given the additional portfolio of KP information and public relations, sources told ARY News.
Ajmal Wazir Khan was appointed as new KP information adviser back in March 2020. He replaced senior minister Shaukat Yousafzai.
Sources said the reason behind Wazir’s removal is a leaked audio clip and allegations that he received commission from an advertising agency.
An inquiry committee has been formed by CM Mahmood Khan to probe the audiotape in which Ajmal Wazir was allegedly asking for commission from an advertising agency.
