Though the official version of Aap News and the journalistic video regarding the reason for show closure is awaited, Mateen had claimed a few days back that Omar Ayub Khan, the Minister for Power, had threatened him with his job.
I n case you are unavailable although I doubt your flimsy excuse pl depute Babar Nadeem who was showing off his picture saying this was historic ExxonMobil deal. Why are you running away after threatening me with my job. https://t.co/mg1qfXM5oG— Amir Mateen (@AmirMateen2) September 21, 2019
