Once again the sword of Damocles is hanging on the heads of federal cabinet ministers as there are reports doing the rounds that the prime minister is unhappy with the ministers and mulling changes in his cabinet, reported 24NewsHD TV channel on Saturday.

According to sources, Prime Minister Imran Khan is not satisfied with his ministers’ performance and he would soon announce changes in his cabinet team.

The sources informed efforts are on for Faisal Vawda’s re-entry into the cabinet. They said a new minister will head Ministry for Water Resources. 

Wide-ranging changes could not be brought about earlier in the cabinet due to the opposition of now estranged PTI leader Jehangir Khan Tareen. However, the prime minister in his yesterday’s speech at Gilgit-Baltistan expressed displeasure over some ministers’ performance.
