ISLAMABAD: Usman Dar, Prime Minister’s special assistant, vehemently said on Tuesday that the verdict of former president Asif Ali Zardari’s disqualification case will be written in the history.
Speaking to media in the premises of the Islamabad High Court (IHC), Dar expressed gratitude to the high court on the acceptance of his disqualification petition against Asif Ali Zardari. He said “Asif Zardari will be disqualified under Article 62 (1)(F)”.
“Zardari concealed his assets and New York apartments while Mehreen Shah was used as front-man,” the PM’s aide said.
Taking a jibe at Chief Minister (CM) Sindh, he said “Murad Ali Shah can foresee Pakistan sinking but not Sindh.”
Dar further challenged the CM Sindh to dare inquire Zardari about his assets, “if he really wants to secure the future of Pakistan Peoples Party.”
