Hammad Azhar isn’t a federal minister anymore

The portfolio of the Revenue Division has been withdrawn from Hammad Azhar less than a day after it was awarded to him.

A notification issued by the Cabinet Division on July 9 announced that the portfolio has been given to Hafeez Shaikh, the adviser to the prime minister on finance, revenue and economic affairs.
