He announced his decision on Twitter and said that though he was offered the post of energy minister, he has decided not to take it. Umar has received a lot of criticism following his handling of the country’s financial position.
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
