Opposition leader and Awami Muslim League (AML) President Sheikh Rashid slammed the impending return of former federal finance minister Ishaq Dar, noting that the economy was too far gone even for the famed financial wizard to fix.
In a message posted on the social media site Twitter on Monday, Rashid had some choice words about the impending return of Dar to the country after a lapse of nearly five years and his expected takeover of the federal finance ministry as the government seeks to take the gloves off in tackling runaway inflation and other poor economic indicators while consolidating itself ahead of elections next year.
He claimed that a man who has been declared an absconder first fled the country in the prime minister’s official plane is now returning to Pakistan in the official plane of another prime minister.
Rashid added this showed a certain level of shamelessness and belligerence of the former finance minister and the incumbent government. —INP
