Breaking: Asad Umar Confirms Resignation as Finance Minister

Finance Minister Asad Umar has confirmed that he is officially resigning from his post. The minister tweeted on Thursday to approve the speculations of a cabinet reshuffle.

Umar revealed that PM Imran wanted him to quit the Finance Ministry and take charge as Energy Minister instead.

He, however, did not wish to take work in any other ministry, and would rather not be a part of PM’s cabinet anymore.

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

Names of renowned economist Dr. Salman Shah, Dr. Hafeez Pasha, and former finance minister Shaukat Tareen are under consideration to be appointed as advisor to PM on finance.

He is expected to address a press conference soon.

It is a developing story and will be updated accordingly.

  • Twitter walay jab asal maidaan me atay hain tu phir youn bhagtay hain… Go Back To Twitter. Blaim Nawaz Sharif and Sleep. Thats what you guys worth!

    • At least he resigns that makes him an honorable one and accepting defeat , your beloved government did the same and shamelessly not accepting their wrong doings even today

      • Hahahhaa…. sir honorable…apke bajake en banda chala gaya or aap keh rahen shareef tha condom use kya tha….

        • Typical ignorant or (educated ignorant) response , you don’t even know the honorable way to disagree , i will continue no further .

          • Sir paida hona is honorable tabhe tu log meethai bante hai…. Agar aapko yeh nhe lagta tu mar jain…. Magar baray hoke Asad Umar jaisay dhokaybaz or gareebo ke lasho par zinda rehne wale is not honorable….

  • Now, PM Sahab Should take Charge as ” Finance & Prime Minister of Pakistan”

      • Arey bhai ye jahil hai kahin be pohanch kar anab shanab bakta hai. Everybody laugh at him but he doesn’t have any shame.

  • Energy sector mein Asad Umar ke buhat zarorat ha , Is sector ko private hony ke zarorat ha

  • The “jaahil awaam” with 0 economic sense, fooled by the propaganda news, was demanding this and they got it.

    Otherwise all the hard decisions he was making are an absolute requirement for the long-term benefit of the economy.

    But who cares, continue the same old crap and do politics-based-economy with short-term “image” gains, but long-term economic turmoil. There goes “naya” Pakistan – bowed down to the jaahil’s whims.

  • Presidential system is coming . Resign of current government ministers would do no good to nawaz and zardari party.

    • Presidential system se kia fiada hoga. Log to yahi honge na. sky se kia aliens ko bulao ge safaye karne ke liye. Civic Centre (Karachi) mein khulle aam rishwat aur batta khori ke jari hai, kia kar lia imran khan ne?

  • Very Bad, Very bad decision, if Asad Umar can’t make Pakistan economy good, then no one, now Imran Khan should call beloved Finance Minister Mr. Ishaq Dar. war gaye hun
