ISLAMABAD: A day after National Accountability Bureau (NAB) seized bank accounts and properties of Finance Minister Ishaq Dar, the call for his resignation intensified.

On Wednesday, NAB sprang into action against Dar after an accountability court initiated proceedings against him in a corruption reference.

NAB also wrote to district governments, asking them to stop any transfer or disposal of the properties owned by Dar. Moreover, a NAB team visited the minister’s Islamabad residence to execute his arrest warrants.

Today, ‘Go Nawaz Go’ chants echoed in the Senate’s Standing Committee on Finance.

Chairman of the committee, Senator Saleem Mandviwala, categorically raised the demand of Ishaq Dar’s resignation. “Arrest warrants are causing bad name to Pakistan, we will advise him to leave the office,” he said.

Two members of the committee – Fateh Muhammad Hussaini and Mohsin Aziz – have also urged Dar to step down. – Samaa
