Pak PM wants Umar back in his cabinet

Islamabad, Apr 21 (UNI) Prime Minister Imran Khan has said he will ask Asad Umar to rejoin the cabinet because it will benefit the cabinet greatly.

During a meeting at Bani Gala on Saturday, PM Khan praised the former finance minister and said he is a good man who we hope will rejoin the cabinet. Umar announced on Thursday that he was resigning as finance minister.

According to a Samaa TV report, Khan told party leaders that there were no permanent positions in the government – you either worked for the people or you went home.

PM Khan expressed his satisfaction with the chief ministers of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa and Punjab and said they will continue working on their posts.

The country is in a critical situation right now and we need to control it, he said. Once the economy stabilizes, everything will be fine, said the premier. Praising the new adviser on finance, he said Hafeez Sheikh is a capable man and economic expert.

PM Khan also praised Railways Minister Sheikh Rasheed.

He directed his health adviser, Dr Zafarullah Mirza, to reduce drug prices in the country. The meeting decided the government will give a strong reply to the opposition’s criticism.
