How to update an issue status through C# code

I am trying to update status of an issue in JIRA using C# code. 

See code below:

var data = new Issue();
data.fields.project.key = "VRM";
data.fields.summary = obj.summary;
data.fields.description = obj.description; = obj.issuetype; = obj.status; = obj.priority;

string postUrl = String.Format("{0}rest/api/2/issue/{1}", Url, obj.issueid);
System.Net.Http.HttpClient client = new System.Net.Http.HttpClient();
client.BaseAddress = new System.Uri(postUrl);

byte[] cred = UTF8Encoding.UTF8.GetBytes("txxxxxxxx:xxxxxxxxx");
client.DefaultRequestHeaders.Authorization = new System.Net.Http.Headers.AuthenticationHeaderValue("Basic", Convert.ToBase64String(cred));
client.DefaultRequestHeaders.Accept.Add(new System.Net.Http.Headers.MediaTypeWithQualityHeaderValue("application/json"));
System.Net.Http.Formatting.MediaTypeFormatter jsonFormatter = new System.Net.Http.Formatting.JsonMediaTypeFormatter();
System.Net.Http.HttpContent content = new System.Net.Http.ObjectContent<Issue>(data, jsonFormatter);
System.Net.Http.HttpResponseMessage response = client.PutAsync(postUrl, content).Result;
if (response.IsSuccessStatusCode)
result = true;
// result = response.Content.ReadAsStringAsync().Result;
