KARACHI: In what appears to be a rift in the ranks of Pakistan Muslim League Nawaz (PMLN) leadership, the party is divided into two groups over the selection of economic czar for steering the country out of financial crisis.
Interestingly enough, Minister for Railways Khwaja Saad Rafique is desperately waiting for Ishaq Dar’s return to the country for leading the economic team while Khwaja Asif and Shahid Khaqan Abbasi are in favour of Miftah Ismail.
Taking to Twitter, Saad Rafique heaped praise on Dar’s capabilities and termed him as a far-sighted, economic wizard, honest and competent.
“PMLN team is incomplete without him,” tweeted Saad, adding, “We are earnestly waiting for his return.” He said Dar’s guidance would prove to be panacea for all complicated government affairs.
Earlier, admiring Miftah, Khwaja Asif said he was one of the most hard-working members of the PM Shehbaz’s cabinet.
Shahid Khaqan Abbasi said there was no comparison of Miftah’s knowledge on economy, adding that he played a key role in preventing the country from becoming bankrupt.
It is pertinent to mention that Ishaq Dar had hinted at returning to the country, adding that the party leadership will decide about his role in the finance ministry.
