Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf member Syed Sumsam Ali Bukhari was sworn in as Punjab provincial minister on Tuesday.
Bukhari was administered the oath by Punjab Governor Chaudhry Mohammad Sarwar at the Governor House.
The oath-taking ceremony was attended by Chief Minister Usman Buzdar and other provincial ministers.
Bukhari will replace Fayyazul Hassan Chohan as Punjab information minister, who tendered his resignation a day earlier from his post as provincial information and culture minister over his anti-Hindu remarks.
