In another major development, the Prime Minister has replaced Makhdoom Khusro Bakhtiar with PTI leader Syed Fakhar Imam as Federal Minister for National Food Security.

Bakhtiar has replaced Hammad Azhar, who is now Federal Minister for Industries

The reshuffle comes two days after a Federal Investigation Agency team released reports on the sugar crisis and beneficiaries of subsidies obtained by the industry’s heavyweights.  The report had named Khusro Bakhtiar as a beneficiary in the scam while he was serving as the head of the National Food Security Ministry.
