The announcement of the reshuffle came from Asad Omar himself while talking it to social media, he wrote:
“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”.

There have been several reports that Prime Minister Imran Khan was mulling over to reshuffle his cabinet after reviewing the eight months performances of the ministers.

Several news reports suggested that PM Imran Khan will reshuffle the portfolios of five ministers, including Finance Minister Asad Umar, Petroleum Minister Ghulam Sarwar Khan and State Minister for Interior Shehryar Afridi.

The reports of the reshuffle were earlier denied by Information Minister Fawad Chaudhry.

In his tweet he said, “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”.
