PMLN’s Ishaq Dar confirms return to Pakistan
Finance Minister Miftah Ismail "does not feel anything" in connection with Dar's likely return
After announcing his return to Pakistan, leader and former finance minister of Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) Ishaq Dar has been given a Pakistani passport.
He mentioned that as his treatment would end in 10-12 days, he will be flying to Pakistan next month. To a question concerning his prospects in terms of the government and economic policies, he answered that he is to be a senator and that it is the party’s decision what his role will be.
He said that only Imran Khan had filed a case against him, that this was “fake” and that he had been absolved by the international body.
He explained: “That is why when Imran Khan’s government approached Interpol seeking my extradition to Pakistan, the documents shared with Interpol turned out to be completely unsubstantiated.”
He said that although he was always timely in regards to filing taxes, the case against him was about tax returns.
Furthermore, Finance Minister Miftah Ismail has expressed his readiness to be replaced by Ishaq Dar if the party wishes. On Tuesday, he said in an interview that he “he does not feel anything about” Ishaq Dar’s expected return and said it was Dar’s choice if he wanted to come back to Pakistan.
He informed that the former FM has been involved in the recent decision making processes as in the case of the fuel subsidies as he called him, “our elder and already a part of the economic team.”
