In a tweet, Khan congratulated Chaudhry for “getting reappointed as Federal Minister for Information”.
“Wish you all the best. Lots of prayers,” he added.

The last time Chaudhry was given the portfolio for the information ministry was in August, 2018. The information ministry was, however, later taken from Chaudhry and he was handed the science and technology ministry.
After the Senate elections last month, Prime Minister Imran Khan made several changes to the cabinet and giving additional charge to Chaudhry of the information ministry was one of them.
Shortly after Senator Khan’s congratulatory tweet, it was reported that Chaudhry called on Prime Minister Imran Khan.
The two reportedly discussed the political situation in the country.
PM Khan informed Chaudhry about giving him additional responsibilities, sources said.
Chaudhry is expected to receive a notification from the Ministry of Information today, the sources added.
It is unclear whether Chaudhry will continue to hold the charge of the science and technology ministry as the government has yet to make the notification of his appointment public.
