Azam Khan, the Caretaker Chief Minister of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, breathed his last in Peshawar on Saturday following a prolonged illness marked by a severe stomach infection. Admitted to the Rehman Medical Institute, he succumbed to a sudden heart attack. The funeral prayers are scheduled to take place at 3:30 pm in his hometown, Prang, Charsadda.

Hailing from Charsadda, Azam Khan, a retired bureaucrat, held noteworthy positions in his career. Notably, he served as the secretary of the Ministry of Petroleum and Natural Resources in Islamabad. His tenure as the chief secretary in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa from September 1990 to July 1993 and his role as the finance minister in the province further underscored his dedicated service.

In January 2023, Azam Khan assumed the role of Caretaker Chief Minister of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa after an agreement between the then Chief Minister Mehmood Khan and opposition leader Akram Khan Durrani. This transition was prompted by a consensus to nominate the experienced bureaucrat for the CM position.

Condolences are pouring in from various quarters. President Dr. Arif Ali expressed profound sympathy, while Punjab Chief Minister Mohsin Naqvi conveyed heartfelt condolences to Azam Khan’s family. Mohsin Naqvi emphasized the disheartening loss, acknowledging Azam Khan’s enduring contributions to the nation and Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, which will be eternally cherished.
