Dar asks Imran to spend time with his ‘daughter’

ISLAMABAD - Finance Minister Ishaq Dar advised PTI chief Imran Khan to spend sometimes with his ‘daughter’ besides his sons so that he could feel respect and affections for daughters and demanded of him to come up with an apology to Maryam Nawaz Sharif for levelling wild allegations against her.

Yesterday the sister of Imran Khan had allegedly faced harassment at the hands of some security squad, which she claimed was with Maryam Nawaz Sharif but later it proved that the security personnel become cause of nuisance for Khan’s family was with someone else but both Imran Khan and his sister came down hard on the government and grilled Maryam Nawaz and his family for all this.

Ishaq Dar said that now when the whole saga of security staff’s scuffle with Imran Khan’s sister was revealed so PTI Chairman should show some moral courage to come up with an apology from Ms Maryam Nawaz Sharif for levelling wild allegations against her.

“Now when the facts have come to surface and it has been established that at the hands of which personality the sister of Imran Khan had to face inconvenience, he must apologise to Maryam Nawaz, keeping in view the Islamic and moral values,” Dar said in a statement.

Rejecting the allegation of Pakitan Tehrik-i-Isaf (PTI) chief holding Maryam Nawaz responsible for the incident, the finance minister said Imran Khan habitually reacted to any incident just on the basis of heresay and without proper investigation.

He advised being the head of a political party, Imran Khan must adopt a responsible attitude. Besides spending time with his sons, Imran Khan must also spend some time with his daughter so that he may feel respect, affection and feelings of daughters.

He said Maryam Nawaz was a daughter of the nation and saying something about her without investigation was very irresponsible and deplorable.

Dar said Imran Khan must decide now whether he would continue his newly established partnership with a party, the personality of which made her sister to face inconvenience. He must also decide whether he would be launching a campaign against that party after Eid as he planned to do in case of Pakistan Muslim League. “Let’s see what he does or he takes a U-turn like in the past and makes another example of unprincipled politics,” Dar added.
