On Thursday, Captain Imran Khan made some major changes to the team of his ministers and reshuffled the portfolios of the Federal Ministers with crucial ministries to be entitled to new faces in which ministry of Interior, Finance, Science and Technology, Information & Broadcast tops the list.
Post Asad Umar’s resignation, the changes were announced officially after a few hours.
Some major changes involves Firdous Ashiq Awan replacing Fawad Chaudhry, whereas Fawad Chaudhry’s appointment as Minister of Science & Technology, Shehryar Afridi’s removal as Interior Minister, and Abdul Hafiz Shaikh taking over as the Finance Minister.
But Pakistanis know how to take up the irony of the situation. Taking over to Twitter, they had something really legit to say about the news.

From Musharraf's cabinet to Zardari's cabinet. Well played IK.
What about Buzdar? Time to reshuffle CM Punjab too?
LACK OF KNOWLEDGE & INCOMPETENCY!!!!#CabinetReshuffle

Asif Zardari looted the public money, finance ministry is a tool. But his finance minister is now Mr.clean’s 😅 now think before blaming zardari! #cabinetreshuffle

And the unpredictability of PTI beats that of GOT’s…
Crazy that PTI killed off more major characters than #GameofThrones this season.

As some friends described and I agree…it was Red Wedding day….#cabinetreshuffle #AsadUmar seems like PPP is slowly creeping back in power. @BBhuttoZardari Hafeez Sheikh, Dr Firdaus Aashiq Awaan, and already Samsam Bokhari and Shah Mehmood Qureshi were there.

The guys has a point though.. but it doesn’t justify the decision.
Everyone who was complaining about the performance of certain Ministers is now complaining about their removal! Kamaal mulk hai. 🇵🇰 #CabinetReshuffle

Asad Umar is probably listening to Bewafa by Imran Khan.

Some had some worrisome theories and predictions..
The ripple effect has just started. You'll see more chaos & ultimately parliament will be dissolved. But it's uncertain what happens next 🤞 pic.twitter.com/o0kcREdKnz

Assignment of major ministries like Health, Finance, or Petroleum to technocrats is decision disapproved by many Pakistanis. All in all, lets hope that the change tends to be a profitable one.
