PPP chairperson Bilawal Bhutto-Zardari reacted to information of the federal government changing Finance Minister Abdul Hafeez Shaikh and appointing Hammad Azhar in his stead, claiming it’s a victory for the Pakistan Democratic Motion (PDM).
The PPP chief took to Twitter on Monday to say the ‘PTIMF’ minister needed to be elected to proceed in workplace and the PDM’s victory within the Senate elections had made it inconceivable for him to take action.
“Now authorities admits inflation is skyrocketing due to its failed insurance policies,” he tweeted.
In what appeared to be a veiled message to the PML-N and different events of the PDM alliance, Bilawal stated that “Parliamentary opposition confirmed simplest vs this regime”.
Govt replaces Dr Abdul Hafeez Shaikh as finance minister
There was reportedly resentment amongst authorities ministers with Sheikh on issues of taxation and a invoice granting autonomy to the State Financial institution of Pakistan.
The prime minister has reportedly conveyed to the finance minister to step down from his function and a notification on this regard can also be anticipated to be issued quickly.
The event comes after PPP candidate Yusuf Raza Gilani defeated Hafeez Shaikh for the Islamabad basic seat in Senate elections. Following the defeat, Prime Minister Imran Khan on March 6, had directed Shaikh to hold on his duties as Minister for Finance.
