ISLAMABAD: A second economist resigned from Prime Minister Imran Khan’s Economic Advisory Council (EAC) in protest over Dr Atif Mian being asked to step down from the body.
University College London (UCL) Professor Imran Rasul on Saturday in a series of tweets announced that he had resigned from the EAC.
“With a heavy heart, I have resigned from the EAC this morning. The circumstances in which Atif was asked to step down are ones I profoundly disagree with. Basing decisions on religious affiliation goes against my principles, or the values I am trying to teach my children,” Rasul tweeted.
