ISLAMABAD: Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) representative Fawad Chaudhry on Wednesday claimed that Finance Minister Ishaq Dar will be behind bars within three months.
Speaking outside Supreme Court, Chaudhry said that the finance minister should immediately resign taking in consideration economic instability in the country due to the graft cases he is facing.“Take a look at Pakistan Stock Exchange. Where is the country’s economy heading,” he added.
The PTI spokesperson said that Prime Minister Shahid Khaqan Abbasi should start thinking about the country than saving his disqualified leader.
He also said that Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz leader Hanif Abbasi misled Supreme Court by giving a wrong affidavit stating that PTI leader Jahanghir Tareen was named in Panama Papers.
“Abbasi should be sent to jail for three years for giving wrong affidavit,” he said.
Chaudhry said that the party’s legal team is reviewing the election reforms bill recently passed from national assembly, and may soon file a petition against it.
He questioned that when all the parties have consensus that National Accountability Bureau laws are not completely functional and needs required amendments, then why two parties are adamant to appoint a NAB chairman.
“It clearly shows that they are not serious,” he said. “Our 12-member team will present their draft on NAB laws. We will present our model to parliament and media for debate.”
