ISLAMABAD: Federal Minister of Information and Broadcasting Chaudhry Fawad Hussain on Thursday clarified that Farukh Saleem was not spokesman of government of Pakistan.
In a tweet, the minister said, “We ought to have appointed him as spokesman on economy but later it transpired that PM office has banned any hiring, so his appointment could not transpire and he is free to have any opinion.
