Former Finance Minister and PMLN leader Miftah Ismail laughs and goes speechless when asked about 60-year-old Capt Safdar heading the youth wing of PMLN.
Miftah Ismail was in the talk show with Meher Bukhari on Hum News and was asked about the husband of Maryam Nawaz, a 60-year-old Capt (r) Safdar heading the youth wing of Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz. Ismail went speechless in response to the question and paused before he could say anything. Unable to say anything, Miftah Ismail started laughing in the show. Bukhari said this is the first time she has found Miftah Ismail going speechless in response to the question.
In the same interview, Miftah Ismail said that PMLN lost confidence after he revived the IMF program that came with strict conditions. The later party lost by-elections in Punjab. The former finance minister said the party fears they will lose the political capital in the next elections.
The last 3 finance ministers were jokers. They ran a clown show!
Dar sb averted a default after atomic detonations in 1998
The challenges are humongous, he is giving his best shot no match for his commitment and hardwork
The 3 jokers have laid minefields!
