Peshawar: Three Special Advisors to Chief Minister Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa (KP), including Zia Ullah Bangash, have resigned on Saturday.
Bangash, the Advisor for Information Technology, Himayat Ullah, the Advisor for Energy and Ghazan Jamal, Advisor for Excise, have all rendered their resignations to Chief Minister Mahmood Khan.
According to sources, three more resignations from the KP cabinet are expected soon. It is also being speculated that four new people are expected to get into the cabinet while former minister Ajmal Wazir might possibly get a clear chit.
Taking to Twitter, Bangash sent out a message to his followers stating that "unavoidable circumstances" in his constituency have forced him to take the step. "I have a lot of responsibilities and I want to keep up to expectations of my constituency & reserve my entire attention for them," he wrote.
