ISLAMABAD: Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz spokesperson Marriyum Aurangzeb on Thursday weighed in on Asad Umar’s decision to leave Prime Minister Imran Khan’s federal cabinet.
Aurangzeb asked if Umar’s policies were so good and the problems were from the PML-N government, why was he asked to step down.
“This is an admission by IK that his policies have created an economic crisis in Pakistan. The real problem is not Asad. It is the PM,” Aurangzeb tweeted.
Asad Umar announced his decision to leave the federal cabinet after he was told by Prime Minister Imran Khan to take the energy minister portfolio instead of finance as part of a cabinet reshuffle.
“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,” Umar tweeted.
