Special Assistant to Prime Minister (SAPM) on Power and Petroleum Tabish Gauhar has tendered his resignation, less than a year after he was appointed at the earlier position.

Prime Minister Imran Khan has accepted his resignation.

Gauhar was appointed SAPM on Power in October 2020 before being given the additional charge as the SAPM on Petroleum as well, replacing Nadeem Babar.

“After a year of public service, I’ve decided to call it a day to return to my family,” said Gauhar in a tweet post on Tuesday.

The former KE chairman added that he shall remain indebted to the PM for giving him the opportunity.

“Whilst the challenges in the energy sector are manifold, I have no doubt that under the able leadership of Hammad Azhar, the Ministry of Energy team will continue to stay the course on structural reforms. May Allah continue to bless Pakistan,” he added.

The development comes amid reported differences between Minister for Planning, Development and Special Initiatives, Asad Umar, and Minister for Maritime Affairs, Ali Zaidi, with Gauhar.

For months, the federal capital has remained abuzz with speculation that Gauhar would be shown the door for reportedly failing to deal with the recent energy crisis which has earned a bad name for the government.

Gauhar served as KE CEO for over six years before resigning in 2015. He is also the founder and chairman of Oasis Energy which is a management consultancy firm in the power and energy sector.

This is very unfortunate that difference of opinion is resulting in frequent change in think tank of Pakistan. How can some wise person believe that complex issues of national level can be resolved with team of yes-men. As a nation we need to learn conflict management skill otherwise our core issues will remain unresolved.

Good Riddance! Tabish was brought to bring improvement in Power sector. What he brought in were his loyal mediocre cronies! One famous incident was rejection of the top most candidate for position of CEO of CPPA-G. Due to personal issues of Tabish with the candidate from past, Tabish prevailed on PM/Cabinet not to appoint the best talent to CEO of CPPA-G. The performance of Mr. Tabish Gohar is now infront of everyone while he is running away!!
