ISLAMABAD : Federal Minister for Science and Technology Fawad Chaudhry said on Wednesday that Chief Minister Punjab Usman Buzdar will remain on his post as long as he enjoys the trust of Prime Minister Imran Khan. If a chief minister has the backing of the PM, he will keep on working, said Fawad while talking to a private television channel. The minister said that opposition is not an issue for the incumbent government but expectations that people have with the ruling Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf are an issue. “Opposition is not an issue, the issue is that the people have a lot of expectations from the PTI and people hope that PTI will bring a sea change in Pakistan and that is a challenge for us,” said Fawad. The minister explained that the opposition did not pose a threat as political parties are based on individuals, adding that if one individual is eliminated then the party goes into confusion. He cited the example of Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N), saying that the party has been headless since the exit of supremo Nawaz Sharif. Fawad Chaudhry shared that his ministry has formalised a system for moon sighting and sent it to the Ministry for Parliamentary Affairs for approval, adding that the ministry has forwarded it to the Council of Islamic Ideology (CII) as well. “Now it is the job of CII and the federal cabinet if they want to impose it or not. The minister said if the people continue to rely on sighting the moon with the naked eye, the country will “never be able to determine a single or certain Eid because it will be different every time and it will go on like this”.
