Dr Shahbaz Gill resigns as Punjab CM spokesperson, Awn Chaudary removed as adviser

LAHORE, Sep 13 (INP): Chief Spokesperson to the Chief Minister of Punjab Dr Shahbaz Gill on Friday resigned from his post with immediate effect as the provincial government reshuffled some ministerial portfolios.

The spokesperson to the chief minister resigned via a handwritten note addressed to Punjab CM Usman Buzdar. Gill did not cite any reason behind his abrupt decision.

However, in a post on the social networking platform Twitter, Gill earlier said that he would be sharing important news with his 88,000 followers very soon.

In another major development, Buzdar fired Special Adviser Awn Chaudhry and appointed Asim Mehmood in his place.
According to sources, the spokesperson has stepped down as it was hard for him to defend poor governance of the incumbent government in Punjab province.
