The Interior Minister was given a detailed briefing regarding the Ministry of Interior and its subsidiaries in the Introductory meeting with senior officers of the ministry.
The important portfolio was vacated after the resignation of Sarfraz Bugti as caretaker minster for interior. Sarfraz Bugti had resigned from the portfolio for taking part in the general elections of 2024.
Dr. Gohar Ejaz is a notable figure in the dynamic second generation of business and industry leadership. Being the accomplished son of the late Senator Sheikh Ejaz Ahmed, he is a name synonymous with unparalleled business wisdom.
