The country needs Nawaz Sharif

Speaking to the media in London, Ishaq Dar stated that Nawaz Sharif’s issues should have been resolved by now, that all the evidence had arrived, and that if it hadn’t been for the drama of Panama and Dawn, Pakistan would have been somewhere else today. He claimed that while Nawaz Sharif allowed him to travel to Pakistan a few weeks ago, he was subjected to legal injustices.

Ishaq Dar states, “Previously, I was not going to Pakistan because of the pending petition; I didn’t even have a passport, which was an impediment to going to Pakistan; after getting the passport, they allowed me to resubmit this petition.” The former finance minister stated that the petition had been pending in the Supreme Court for nearly four and a half years, that he had withdrawn his previous petition, that his passport had been cancelled by Imran Khan’s government, and that he had recently been issued a passport.

The PML-N leader says he must first visit Pakistan before October 7. I will make a decision based on what Nawaz Sharif and Shahbaz Sharif say; I believe I will visit Pakistan by the end of next week. He also stated that my oath of senate membership is pending and that I must take it; that after taking the oath of senate membership, I will perform the duties that the party will impose; and that I believe in performance rather than claims. The former federal minister stated that he was the first to try to control the dollar and stop it; there are many economic concerns; Nawaz and Shahbaz Sharif are also concerned.
