Aiming to bring change in the country, government is thinking to change the Federal Finance Minister. From the day new government is formed, it is continuously facing severe economic crisis and all the financial expertise of the Minister has not been very fruitful. Having said that, Prime Minister Imran Khan has decided to change to Finance Minister, Asad Umar. The steady hike in the dollar price is a major evidence to flopped policies.
As per reliable sources, Imran khan has decided to remove Mr. Asad Umar from the Finance Minister designation and a long meeting was held on Monday with Dr. Salman Shah in which PM Imran Khan was briefed about the policies of Mr. Asad Umar, which were not proven effective. Dr. Salman further elaborated his various policies to PM Imran khan, which can support Pakistan through this difficult period.
Dr. Salman Shah is one of the economists, who can play an important role in stabilizing the government and country’s economy. Salman Shah is the son in law of the former Chief of Army Staff, General Asif Nawaz Janjua. He has served as the caretaker Finance Minister and also as an advisor to the Finance Minister Shaukat Aziz during Pervez Musharraf’s tenure. Dr. Salman Shah is known for his expertise across Finance, Economic Affairs, Statistics, and Revenues.
In the coming days, a formal announcement to remove Mr. Asad Umar will be made and Dr. Salman Shah will be appointed as the Finance Minister. Our sources tell us that Punjab’s Information Minister Fayyaz ul Hassan Chohan and Federal Information Minister Fawad Chahudhry can be the next in line for changes due to unplanned and answers/comments in front of the media.
