Interim Chief Minister of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa Azam Khan has passed away, Aaj News reported on Saturday.

He was admitted in the hospital on Friday night due to stomach infection, after which he suffered a heart attack, Radio Pakistan reported.

The former minister’s funeral will be held at 3:30 pm in the Parang, Charsadda, today.

Khan took oath as the KPK chief minister in January this year after the provincial government and the opposition unanimously agreed on his name for the position.

Khan belonged to Charsadda and previously served as KPK finance minister from October 24, 2007, to April 1, 2008.

He also remained the secretary of the ministry of petroleum and natural resources in Islamabad and the chief secretary in KPK from September 1990 to July 1993.

Meanwhile, President Dr Arif Alvi in a statement on X expressed his deep sorrow and offered condolences to the family members of Khan.

Caretaker Prime Minister Anwaar-ul-Haq Kakar expressed grief on the CM’s death and said that the former minister was “an honest and good person”.

Sindh Governor Kamran Khan Tessori also expressed his grief and prayed for the deceased’s ranks.

It is incredible. These old men will never stop wanting to be in power, even with 1 and a half foot in the grave. And a country with huge proportion of youth can only be ruled by 70+, or irrelevant puppets like Kakar? What a vacuum we have created for smart, energetic, competent, clean leaders. No one on the horizon anywhere.
