Ishaq Dar to hold press conference today
ISLAMABAD (92 News) – Finance Minister Ishaq Dar will on Monday (today) hold a press conference at 1400 hours.
The finance minister would address several important national issues regarding during the press conference.
His press conference came at a times when the incumbent government is facing several issues including Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf’s (PTI) November 2 sit-in and relations between the PML-N party and the military soured earlier this month after a controversial newspaper report about national security.
PTI chairman Imran Khan vowed to bring a million people into Islamabad on Wednesday to paralyze the government and force Sharif either to resign or allow an inquiry into the “Panama Papers” revelations about his family’s offshore wealth.
Khan said it is corruption, not protests, that threatens democracy. “When you have people coming to power and looting the country, they actually weaken the democratic system because people lose faith in democracy, and when the army comes in they welcome them with sweets.”
The PTI chairman’s latest challenge to Sharif’s government is based on leaked documents from the Panama-based Mossack Fonseca law firm that appear to show the prime minister’s daughter and two sons owned offshore holding companies registered in the British Virgin Islands and used them to buy properties in London.
