It is pertinent to mention here that Govt has taken the step after news of Maleeka Bukhari circulated on Social media for his appointment as Chairperson of Benazir income support programme.

“I want to categorically put it on record that I have not been appointed as Head of BISP. I am also not related to Zulfi Bokhari. I hope this suffices & should put the discussion to an end,” she tweeted on miss-reports.
