ISLAMABAD: Finance Minister Ishaq Dar on Monday stated that Pakistan Muslim League-N and Prime Minister Shahid Khaqan Abbasi would have the final say about his resignation.
After presenting himself before the accountability court, Ishaq Dar held a press conference where he spoke to media officials. Much of the presser was dominated with questions pertaining to the army chief's comments regarding the country's economy.
"Leave it, Ahsan Iqbal has given his reply," said Ishaq Dar. "All institutions belong to Pakistan and we must not make any of them controversial," he added.
During the press conference, Dar promised that Pakistan would be rid of the loadshedding problem within a few months. He acknowledged that Pakistan's circular debt had reached to Rs 390 billion.
He also said that every single person was responsible for his own tax return.
Dar was visibly perturbed during the entire press conference as signs of fatigue were apparent on his face. Throughout his presser, the finance minister urged journalists to move on with other questions.
