Finance Minister Ishaq Dar seeks Allah Almighty’s help to save the economy of Pakistan Friday. He said that Pakistan was founded in the name of Islam and Allah and Almighty are responsible for its development and prosperity.
He expressed these views while addressing the inauguration ceremony of the Green line Express Train service in Islamabad. Dar said that he has full faith that Pakistan would progress because it is created in the name of Allah.
If Allah can make Pakistan, he can develop, protect and make it prosper it. The finance minister said, “they are trying their best to improve Pakistan’s condition under Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif’s leadership”.
Dar asserted that the present government is making every effort to relieve the economy and the government is working day and night. “The team is trying to improve the situation ahead of the elections,” said Dar.
Dar is blaming the previous government for the economic debacle. He said that Pakistan was undergoing economic growth in the previous term of Nawaz Sharif between 2013 and 2018. The economic downturn started when Imran Khan came into power.
