Federal Board of Revenue Chairperson Shabbar Zaidi resigned from his post on Tuesday morning.

He said that he has been advised by his doctors to not take stress and rest. Zaidi has confirmed to SAMAA TV that he does not plan on rejoining once he feels better.

Zaidi had taken a sick leave from January 6 to January 19. Many people speculated that differences have developed between Zaidi and the government. The FBR, however, rejected such reports.

He joined on January 20 but took another leave from January 31 onwards.

Nausheen Javaid Amjad was serving as the acting chairperson of the FBR in Zaidi’s absence.

The government is thinking about options for his replacement and has held meetings with different people.

    Whenever difference develop between the government & key post holder in the government the same attitude adopted through government to calm down the developing news between 2 to avoid further development of grievances and slowly come to end the rift asking the resign from the key post holder to achieve the goal through appointing new person of favouring minded person. So the opposing person is out because he may be disagree gov;point of view regarding national issue(s). This is always in every gov: every time. That is why our most intellectual Minister for finance Mr. Dr. Mehboob-ul Haq was fired from the post and since than our monetary policy fell down and never come up.Allah Hafiz of My country Pakistan. The day will come when all the anti Pakistan group will abolished from this land with their foreign allies In-Sha-Allah.
