Babar Awan Becomes Minister-In charge for IT and Telecom

babar_Awan01_608-1-640x480In a latest development today, Dr. Babar Awan was given the minister-ship of Telecom and It Ministry, told us sources in the IT ministry.

Dr. Babar Awan today visited the Ministry to take charge and to get familiar with the heads of Organizations under MoIT and staff, added our sources.

In addition to Minister-In charge of Telecom and IT Ministry, Dr. Awan will retain headship of law Ministry.

Ministry of IT and Telecom was minister-less since February 2011 when Syed Yousaf Raza Gillani, Prime Minister Pakistan had dissolved the federal cabinet.

Earlier, Sardar Assef Ahmed was made Minister for the MoITT in December 2010, however, he had to move out in February 2011 when federal cabinet was dissolved.

Appointment of Dr. Babar Awan is made at a time when ministry has remained back to back minister-less or secretary less for almost three years. His appointment is particularly important as USF is going to begin its operations after a halt of 11 months. Dispute between Chairman PTA and Member Finance of PTA is going to be riddle to solve for Dr. Awan.

  • chalo bhy IT aur Telecom industry bhi gayee.. Yaha bhi corruption shru hogi… Zardari tum koi ministry nahi chorna corruption sai paak.

    actually babar was very hopeful to be Governor of Punjab that why he putting statement against PML (N). But Alas! Lateef khosa was so suitable candidate to be assassinated sorry elected for as Governor Punjab.

    And My friends it is mendatroy by the Zooordari sahab to become Minister IT before becoming Governor Punjab.

  • hahahahaha lagta ha punjab me or punjab hukamat k package band hone walle hein..

  • This is just an indicator as to what can happen with the industry which is earning maximum and contributing maximum to Government Funds. You never know, there may be more surprises for this this nation by ruling elite. Let us pray and beg forgiveness of our sins ! Surely, it is the result of our “mis-deeds”. Remember the old saying
    “JAISY ROOHE WASIE FRASHITE”

  • Correct me if I am, Am I reading that Online PhD “Dr” Mr. Maulana Baber Awan (as he is also claimed by some newspapers as having great knowledge of Islamic teaching) is now Minister of IT as well when he by his profession is a lawyer ? On the other hand Khursheed Shah is Minister of Religious Affairs ?

    There shouldn’t a criteria for such posts? If these are purely Management and planning positions do these friends of President have those skills? When even to hire a clerk there is a criteria, why not for a Minister ? Fruits of Democracy ?
