Dar not suitable to be finance minister: Shaukat Tarin

Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) leader Shaukat Tarin stated that current Finance Minister Ishaq Dar lacks a basic understanding of the economy and is not suitable for the position.

Tarin responded to Dar’s press conference on January 4 in response to the PTI’s white paper on the state of the economy. He said that “Finance Minister Ishaq Dar’s press conference on January 4 was an attempt to divert attention from the miseries inflicted by the Pakistan Democratic Movement (PDM) imported regime on 220 million Pakistanis.”

The State Bank of Pakistan (SBP), the International Monetary Fund (IMF), and staff reports, according to him, provided the actual data on which all the figures in the white paper were based.

The PDM government, Tarin continued, “failed to present a roadmap for the economy, increasing SBP reserves, and avoiding a default on external debt payments. The real focus is on the mess that we inherited and how we turned around the economy with a stellar 6% growth over two consecutive years despite the Covid pandemic.”

He criticized the finance minister for failing to offer solutions to the widespread problem of record-high inflation and asserted that four to five million people would suffer unemployment as a result of the current administration’s failed policies.

He asserted that the PTI government created an average of 1.8 million jobs annually.
