Asad Umar steps down as finance minister


ISLAMABAD: Asad Umar on Thursday announced his decision to leave the post of federal finance minister.

Umar took to Twitter and wrote, “As part of a cabinet reshuffle PM desired that I take the energy minister portfolio instead of finance. However, I have obtained his consent to not take any cabinet position. I strongly believe @ImranKhanPTI is the best hope for Pakistan and inshallah will make a naya Pakistan.”

Earlier on April 15, it was reported that the premier is not impressed with the performance of around half a dozen cabinet ministers including Finance Minister Asad Umar and State Minister for Interior Shehryar Afridi and wants to reshuffle their portfolios.

However, a source privy to PakistanToday said that no cabinet shuffle is likely to be made in the next fortnight and rather the prime minister would make up his mind after having a quarterly review of the performance of various ministries after his visits to Iran and China.

Following the decision, Asad Umar addressed a presser and said that he is only leaving the federal cabinet and not Imran Khan.

Bajwa said that the construction of affordable homes will provide livelihood opportunities to a large number of people.
He further said that the premier is reshuffling his cabinet while adding that “last night I talked to him and this morning also held a meeting with him and I have already told him that I would not be the part of his cabinet”. Umar said no one should expect from the coming finance minister to improve things in three months.
Meanwhile, Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz leader Marriyum Aurangzeb, in her response, has said that “Asad Umar is not [the] real problem in view of Pakistan economic crisis, but it is the PM [Imran Khan]”.
