Federal Science Minister Fawad Chaudhry has said that he will not think of tendering resignation because “anyone wishes so”.

Taking to Twitter Wednesday night, the PTI minister said politics is not for the weak-minded. “There’s no question of resigning because anyone wants me to. I’ll stay a minister as long as I have the prime minister’s trust,” Chaudhry wrote.

The PTI leader was hitting back at his party mate and Punjab Information Minister Fayyazul Hasan Chohan who asked Chaudhry to resign if he was unhappy with the party.

Chohan had criticised him for speaking about PTI’s internal affairs in an interview with the Voice of America.

In the interview, Chaudhry had claimed that Prime Minister Imran Khan’s close associate and PTI leader Jahangir Tareen was the reason why Asad Umar stepped down as finance minister in April 2019.

He revealed that there are rifts between Tareen, Foreign Minister Shah Mahmood Qureshi and Umar. He said the difference between them hurt the party and forced the PTI’s “political class” to part ways.

“As soon as the PTI government was formed, quarrels between Qureshi, Umar and Tareen began. Tareen used his influence to get Umar removed from the Cabinet and later Umar got Tareen out,” said Chaudhry.

“We tried very hard to get their issues resolved, but they still haven’t.”
