Twitter Abuzz With Memes As SAPM Moeed Yusuf Says PM Reversed His Own Decision Because He Wears Many Hats
Special Assistant to the Prime Minister on National Security Division and Strategic Policy Planning Moeed Yusuf has come up with an unusual explanation for the federal cabinet overruling the Economic Coordination Committee (ECC)’s earlier decision to resume trade with India. Yousuf said that Imran Khan approved trade with India as Minister for Commerce, but later opposed his own decision as head of the federal cabinet [Prime Minister].
“Imran Khan may be the same person, but he wears two different hats in this case,” the SAPM said. He was responding to a question on a talk show on Geo News.
Social media is abuzz with tongue in cheek comments about Moeed Yusuf’s reasoning.
This is some great spin. Perhaps the prime minister is so adept at wearing different hats that he had to ask who had forwarded the approval of trade with India.
Two hats indeed. Both conical. https://t.co/nSAhLn1bat

Imran Khan the commerce minister sends a proposal to Imran Khan the prime minister for approval; Imran Khan the prime minister exercises his prerogative as prime minister to reject a proposal by Imran Khan the commerce minister. Everybody, just go home. https://t.co/0B7QxvUVGN

Double role by a film actor may be for suspense. But dithering by a PM, even a selected one,on a foreign policy issue leads to loss of credibility. Theory of double ministerial caps making 2 different decisions implies that PM’s brain is in the two caps and not in his head. https://t.co/2zXlRurHle
