BBC anchor grills PML-N’s Ishaq Dar
BBC program Hard Talk host, Stephen Sackur grilled Pakistan Muslim League-N (PML-N) leader Ishaq Dar in an interview.
Stephen Sackur asked various political and personal questions from the former finance minister. To a query, Dar said he believed in transparency and he was not involved in any corruption.
When he was asked about the number of properties that he and his family owned, he tried to evade the question by saying that it was all mentioned in his tax returns.
“I have my main residence in Pakistan which has been taken over by this regime. I have not got too many properties,” he said when he was probed again. However, the anchor seemed still unsatisfied with the answer so he repeated his question once again. To which the PML-N leader said that he owned only one property.
He denied having any property in London or Dubai. He said his sons were independent as they were doing business for last 17 years.
Sackur asked if everything was so crystal clear then why he did not go and make it clear in the court of law.
