The irrigation portfolio, which has been taken back from Mr Khuhro, has been passed on to Syed Murad Ali Shah who will have this additional charge along with the ministries of finance, energy, planning and development.
Mr Khuhro will continue to hold the portfolio of information along with education.
Likewise, Sharjeel Inam Memon, who had been made minister for works and services, was given additional charge of the archives department after the fresh approval from the chief minister. The portfolio of katchi abadis, which fell vacant after the resignation of Javed Nagori, has been entrusted to Tariq Arain.
After the reshuffle of the portfolios, Mr Bijarani continues to be minister without portfolio weeks after his former department of works and services had been given to Mr Memon. While he was allotted the education ministry after a meeting of Pakistan Peoples Party high command in Dubai, he refused to take the charge until Dr Fazlullah Pechuho, who was closely related to the party’s leadership, was education secretary.
