LAHORE: Federal Minister for Railways Sheikh Rashid Ahmed has said that he would ask former Finance Minister Asad Umar to continue serving the country as a member of the federal cabinet.
Addressing a press conference, he said that it was Imran Khan prerogative to change any members of his team.
Rashid said that a minister whom he never imagined would be asked to leave was left out after the cabinet reshuffle.
He said that only one minister was sacked while Asad Umar resigned. Expressing his confidence in Imran Khan’s ability to run the country, Rashid said that the captain is taking time to set his team.
Rashid said that Imran would complete his five-year term.
Rashid further stated that Imran Khan is working hard as a prime minister and that Asad Umar had worked hard to save the economy. “Countries are not lost in wars, they are lost through bad economic policy,” Rashid said.
Commenting on his political opponents, Rashid said that he does not see any political future for Shahbaz Sharif, Nawaz Sharif or the Zardaris.
“If Bilawal stands up for his father’s corruption, his political career will be over,” the railways minister predicted.
