Dr Zafar Mirza & Tania Aidrus resign as special assistants to PM over ‘criticism’

Special Assistant to the Prime Minister on Digital Pakistan Tania Aidrus and Special Assistant to Prime Minister on Health Dr Zafar Mirza announced on Wednesday that they were resigning from their posts.

Two notifications issued by the Cabinet Division said Prime Minister Imran Khan had accepted both Aidrus and Mirza’s resignations.

Aidrus said she was resigning from her post due to recent criticism levelled against her and the government because of her dual citizenship.

In a tweet, Aidrus said: “Criticism levied towards the state as a consequence of my citizenship status is clouding the purpose of Digital Pakistan”.

“In the greater public interest, I have submitted my resignation from the SAPM role. I will continue to serve my country and the PM’s vision to my best ability.” She also attached a picture of her resignation letter addressed to the premier.
