Islamabad: It has been reported in a section of the press that a Ministry of Energy is being established by merging the Ministries of Water and Power and Petroleum and Natural Resources. The Cabinet Division which deals with the subject of creation of Ministries/Divisions under the Rules of Business 1973 has clarified in a statement here today that the Cabinet Division has not moved any such proposal nor any direction in this regard has been received. The story is, therefore, incorrect and baseless.
