In a major cabinet reshuffle, the former Information Minister of Pakistan, Fawad Chaudhary has been appointed as the Minister of Science and Technology.
The recent move has caused quite an uproar in the political scene as well many people are also trying to work out the sudden changes implemented by Imran Khan, the Prime Miniter of Pakistan.
Fawad Chaudhry has resigned from his position as the Information Minister which will now be under the care of Firdous Ashiq Awan who will be working with the PM as special assistant on information for now.
Previously, the post of Minister of Science and Technology was given to Azam Swati who was forced to resign at the end of last year after a major scandal erupted including forced transfer of an IG over a dispute between his son and another family concerning trespassing of land.
The Ministry of Science and Technology has been operating without a Minister since December and while some are just happy that someone has filled the position, many are also taking to Twitter to ask the current PM what credentials make Fawad Chaudhary the right choice for the job while others have started the meme games to digest the major change.
