State Minister Zartaj Gul’s sister appointed NACTA Director

Islamabad (Staff Report): The federal government has appointed State Minister for Climate Change Zartaj Gul's sister, Shabnam Gul, as a director of National Counter Terrorism Authority (NACTA).

Shabnam was serving as an assistant professor at Lahore College for Women in Grade-18, however, all at once she was appointed as a director of the key counter-terrorism body of the country.

As social media users lampooned the government, Minister for Science and Technology Fawad Chaudhry, “Again shows your lack of knowledge and understanding she is PHD in terroism and FATA and selected after interviews as far My job as Min MoST is concerned I am a politician and ministeries are held by politicians not technos, shows your little insight into Democratic system.”

"Whole NECTA is on deputation its not really a significant posting, its just fashionable to come up with stories against politicians, fact check is important before such baseless shares," he added.

However, the NACTA offered a clarification in this regard saying that it received a total of 12 requests from employees of different federal and provincial government departments working in BS 17 to 19 for posting in NACTA on deputation basis.
