Finance Minister and Pakistan Muslim League (N) leader Ishaq Dar has reacted strongly to a recent tweet of PTI Chairman Imran Khan against the government describing it irresponsible and designed only to damage the country's security situation and vitiare the political atmosphere.
In his tweets, the Finance Minister said Imran Khan destroyed Pakistan's economy from World's 24th largest to 47th in 2022. He said this speaks volume of bad governance, incompetence, unprecedented debt accumulation, mismanagement and corruption-led rule which caused high inflation and unbearable miseries for the people of Pakistan.
Ishaq Dar said Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif invited the PTI Chairman as Leader of a political party for a national dialogue on security subject and National Action Plan which affects every Pakistani and Imran Khan's response in this uncouth and crass manner is shocking.
Finance Minister Ishaq Dar said Imran Khan would ‘prefer’ see the country go down if he does not get back into power again.
The finance minister made the remarks in a tweet, responding to Imran Khan’s statement calling Shehbaz Sharif ‘shameless’ despite ‘destroying the economy.’
He said Imran Khan had made an irresponsible tweet aimed at damaging the country’s economic situation.
“Everyone knows, he is a selfish, narcissist, megalomaniac who since his constitutional removal from PM-office has gone berserk,” Dar wrote.
He wrote that Imran’s destruction of the economy had taken Pakistan from the 24th largest economy to the 47th.
