Asad Umar clarifies statement about PM Imran Khan sending Nawaz Sharif to London


Federal Minister for Planning, Development and Special Initiatives Asad Umar on Sunday clarified his previous statement about Prime Minister Imran Khan’s decision to send PML-N supremo Nawaz Sharif to London and said that his words were spun.

Taking to Twitter to clarify his statement, Umar said his statement was taken out of context.

“Spin being given to an answer of mine regarding Nawaz Sharif exit abroad, the discussion was about whether the PM takes decisions or someone else imposes decisions. I stated that the PM takes decisions as I was asked about the Nawaz Sharif exit decision in that context,” he said.

The federal minister said that sending PML-N supremo Nawaz Sharif to London was a “collective decision and was decided in the Cabinet,” further adding that “no external force was involved in it.”

“As stated in the programme, there was consultation & was finally decided in the cabinet. No external force imposed it on us, hence I said decided by PM and I also voted to let him go.”
