Asad Umar Just Resigned And People Can't Stop Making Comparisons With His ‘Resignation’ From Engro

By Rameeza Ahmad | 18 Apr, 2019

Asad Umar just resigned from the cabinet and we did not see that coming.

 

Rumors of Asad Umar being sacked or replaced were rife just a few days ago.

According to Pakistan Today, Asad Umar and the Ministers for Interior and Petroleum were on ‘thin ice’ and Imran Khan was looking to make changes. However, these rumors were denied by the government with Fawad Chaudhry even tweeting a denial.

 

Earlier today Asad Umar just announced his resignation

In his tweet, he mentions that he was being offered another position in the cabinet, as the Minister for Energy but he denied it and obtained Imran Khan’s consent to not accept any position in the cabinet. Which basically translates to; Asad Umar resigned!

 

He quickly shot up to becoming the number one trend on Twitter in Pakistan

And people don’t seem too thrilled with this decision.

 

A lot of people are wondering who the next finance minister will be

Names like Salman Shah, Shaukat Tareen and Hafiz Pasha are being speculated about as the next appointees.

People seem to be really surprised by this sudden decision, so much so that almost all the trends on Twitter are related to Asad Umar and the finance ministry in some way. Even Engro, of which Asad Umar was the CEO was trending.

 

People were trying to make the connection of how his resignation at Engro is similar to his resignation as the finance minister.

 

While others made an entirely different connection, claiming that Asad Umar ruined both Pakistan and Engro and when the going was getting tough, ended up resigning from both positions.

Whatever the case may be, his resignation still comes as a shock for a lot of people. And raised the question of who will be replacing him.

What do you think about Asad Umar’s resignation? Let us know in the comments below.
