Tania Aidrus resigns as SAPM on Digital Pakistan

29 Jul 2020

Tania Aidrus resigned on Wednesday as Special Assistant to Prime Minister (SAPM) Imran Khan on Digital Pakistan.

In a tweet today, Aidrus said that criticism levied towards the state as a consequence of her citizenship status is clouding the purpose of Digital Pakistan. She further said that in the 'greater public interest' she has submitted her resignation to the PM.

"I will continue to serve my country and the PM’s vision to my best ability," she said. In her resignation letter, she said she returned to Pakistan with the singular intent to contribute and develop the vision of Digital Pakistan.

However, she said that the recent discourse in the public sphere of her Canadian nationality is a distraction to her ability to execute on the long term vision for a digital Pakistan.

"It is unfortunate that a Pakistani's desire to serve Pakistan is clouded by such issues," she added in her letter.

Aidrus was appointed as SAPM this year in February. Before coming back to Pakistan she had been working for Google for 12 years in various leadership roles, her last one being “Director, Product, Payments for Next Billion Users”.
