  • Fawad Chaudhary announced the same 2 years ago and then he was removed from Ministry by Imran Khan. So this time as well he will be removed again in some months. So I dont consider this news as important as One Dictator Imran Khan can destroy any project with one decision. Anyway our Science Minister is Shibli Faraz and appointed by Imran Khan. This Science minister’s selection by Mad Khan is the biggest joke of this year already.
