Special Advisor to PM on Energy Tabish Gauhar has resigned.

“Whilst the challenges in the energy sector are manifold, I have no doubt that under the able leadership of Hammad Azhar, the MOE team will continue to stay the course on structural reforms,” he tweeted on Tuesday.

Gauhar was appointed Special Assistant to the Prime Minister for Energy in early October 2020.

Prime Minister Imran Khan had demanded his resignation and Energy Minister Hammad Azhar was also unhappy with his performance. Azhar met the PM Monday and expressed reservations.

Gauhar was accused of appointing his favourites in PSO, Fesco and at power plants. He had resigned in January this year, but Imran Khan had not accepted it then and instructed him to continue working and assured him that his concerns would be addressed. At that time, Prime Minister Imran Khan had said that action would be taken against mafias in the power sector.

He was particularly critical of contracts with independent power producers that were signed during previous governments. He said that they had bled the national exchequer dry.

Gauhar graduated from the Institute of Business Administration with an MBA in 1996. He founded Oasis Energy, a management consultancy firm in the power and energy sector, in 2016. He is best known for working as the CEO and Chairman of K-Electric till 2015.
