    ISLAMABAD (Dunya News) – Azam Swati on Thursday has offered to resign as Federal Minister for Science and Technology following Supreme Court’s (SC) order to launch trial against him under Article 62 (1)(f) in a case regarding transfer of Islamabad Inspector General of Police (IG) Jan Muhammad.

    The minister said that Prime Minister (PM) Imran Khan has been informed about his decision.

    Earlier, Chief Justice of Pakistan (CJP) Mian Saqib Nisar said that the court had gone through the report prepared by joint investigation team. The top judge had also asked IG Amir Zulfiqar about the details over which, the police official said that the case was under hearing in the court.

    It is pertinent here to mention that Islamabad IG was transferred over not picking telephone of Federal Minister for Science and Technology Azam Khan Swati.

    The minister alleged that he called the high-ranked police official for 22 hours but latter did not bother to pick his phone.

    The Supreme Court had later suspended the notification of transfer of Islamabad Inspector General of Police (IG) Jan Mohammad.

    Well, in Zardari or Nawaz's dispensation this would qualify him for promotion if not set him for next PM. He would be booking fist class flight to London. To look around any Avenfield apartments still available after the Sharif biradran have had their loot.

    In case of Zardari , PPP would be crying Swati defended democracy and will be promoted to law minister.

    justice should prevail ... and it is a lesson for rest of Imran Khan team that if they are in the power, they dont have a licences to kill.

    though in past such issues were never considered to be a cause of removing ministers, our courts are hyper active at the moment

    Azam Swati is a legend. One of very few who got indicted for voting fraud in USA. Respect to him.

    On topic : Why offer ? Just send an email/Fax/Message and stop going to office. Is this offer a tactic to stop case of illegal encroachment for his farmhouse from moving forward ?

    Federal Minister for Science and Technology Senator Azam Swati has tendered his resignation to Prime Minister Imran Khan, according to DawnNewsTV.

    "To uphold my moral authority, I sent my resignation to the PM [and told him] that I cannot work under these conditions," Swati said.

    "Now I will defend my case without any portfolio or authority."

    Nah. These people are only interested in haram money made from the Pakistani taxpayer. Remind me which post in the government Aleema has ever held? Minister, junior minister, secretary, commissoner, governer, chief minister, MLA, MNA????

    And PML-N, PPP have ruled for the last 30 years. How come they did not take any action?

    Well, the way he has acted in past and currently shows that he has some integriry in it. Other than that his case was not that much serious, it was just inflated by trp oriented media and chief justice acted on it and pressed him so that no one can call him biased or pro pti. My good wishes for swati sahb
