Federal Aviation Minister Ghulam Sarwar Khan revealed on Dawn News show ‘Live with Adil Shahzeb’ that former Special Assistant to the Prime Minister (SAPM) on Overseas Pakistanis Zulfi Bukhari was not being investigated in the Rawalpindi Ring Road project. “Right now, an inquiry is being conducted against government officials who changed the alignment, disbursement, and other issues. No political figure played any role in this. Zulfi’s name will be cleared God-willing once the inquiry concludes.”

When anchorperson Adil Shahzeb asked if Zulfi Bukhari will be back in the cabinet, Ghulam Sarwar said that Bukhari’s resignation has not been accepted. “He is young and emotional so he offered his resignation but it has not been accepted.”


Zulfi Bukhari stepped down from his cabinet position on May 17 due to the Rawalpindi Ring Road inquiry.


Ghulam Sarwar Khan, who was also named by the Opposition in the Ring Road scandal, said that Prime Minister Imran Khan was “satisfied since day one” that he had nothing to do with it.
