President Arif Alvi administered the oath to Chaudhry Moonis Elahi as a federal minister at the President House in Islamabad.
Elahi, according to sources, had been named as the next minister for water resources which was earlier held by PTI minister Faisal Vawda.
The decision was made in the backdrop of a promise by the PTI-led government to their allies, which include the PML-Q, that they will be given charge of a federal ministry.
Moonis Elahi was elected an MNA from the NA-69 Gujrat-II constituency. He is the son of Punjab Assembly Speaker Chaudhry Pervez Elahi.
