Islamabad: Spokesperson to the President Farhatullah Babar has contradicted a report in a section of the press on Monday claiming that the President had approved a plan to merge the Ministries of Petroleum and the Water and Power into a single Ministry of Energy.
Neither such a plan was presented to President Asif Ali Zardari nor is there any move to merge the two distinctly separate ministries, he added.
The press report about the so called merger is untrue and without any foundation, the Spokesperson said.
