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.

The reports of the reshuffle were denied by Information Minister Fawad Chaudhry. “There is no truth in reports regarding changes in posts of federal ministers. The prime minister has the power to change ministers and the media should play a responsible role on this subject,” Chaudhry tweeted.

“Pakistan is going through an important phase and such speculations create confusion which is not beneficial for the country,” he added.  This is a developing story and will be updated as further details are available
