ISLAMABAD: The government has decided to appoint MNA Tariq Fazal Chaudhry the state minster for Capital Administration and Development Division (CADD), replacing Barrister Usman Ibrahim.

A press statement issued by the Prime Minister’s Office on Friday stated: “The prime minister has decided to appoint Tariq Fazal Chaudhry as state minister for CADD.”

The MNA has been involved in CADD’s affairs since parents of private school students started protesting against fee hike some three months ago.

Besides, he also raised salary issue of daily wage employees (teaching and non-teaching) of FDE schools and colleges at CADD meetings.

A source in the division told Dawn that the federal government was not satisfied with the performance of Usman Ibrahim.

“The PM Office was not happy with the performance of CADD, particularly its subordinate departments such as Federal Directorate of Education (FDE) and Private Educational Institutions Regulatory Authority (PEIRA),” the source said, adding that the government under the indirect supervision of Maryam Nawaz, wanted to improve education system in the federal capital.
