Governor Punjab Chaudhry Sarwar resigns after making anti-govt remarks
Governor Punjab Chaudhry Sarwar resigned from his post on Thursday following a conversation with Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif over statements the governor had made regarding the government’s foreign policy.
Sources in the PM House told The Express Tribune the premier had principally decided to remove Sarwar owing to multiple reasons but particularly because of recent statement by Sarwar on the government’s failure to secure Obama’s visit to Pakistan.
Sarwar had censured the Foreign Office for US President Barack Obama visiting India and not Pakistan and termed it a “failure” on part of the country’s foreign policy.
“I sent my resignation to the President House and PM House last night,” Sarwar confirmed while speaking to Express News.
