Special Assistant to Prime Minister on Information and Broadcasting Dr Firdous Ashiq Awan said that whoever doesn’t perform will be sent home.

Addressing a media gathering alongside Punjab Health Minister Dr Yasmin Rashid and Punjab Information Minister Mian Aslam Iqbal, Dr Firdous said that whoever doesn’t perform, “whether it is the Prime Minister or the Chief Minister”, will be sent home.

“There is only one criterion or benchmark – you have to perform. If you perform, you will stay. But if you don’t you will have to go.”


She asserted that everything comes down to performance and if the lawmakers are loyal to the people their “parameter will be performance.”

Soon after, Dr Awan’s comments began circulating on social media with many users commenting that she was warning PM Imran Khan.

As a result, Dr Firdous took to Twitter to state that her statement was being blown out of context and that PM Khan is a man of principles. She reiterated that whoever does not perform will be let go.
