Shabbar Zaidi calls for ‘financial emergency’ in PakistanAbdul Gh Lone 31 March 2021 0 COMMENTS
Former Federal Board of Revenue chief Shabbar Zaidi has called for a financial emergency in the country.
Zaidi, while speaking on SAMAA TV programme 7se8, said that the country needs an “economic surgery”.
“A financial emergency should be enforced,” he said. “Cars and shops along with property should be registered till the government comes up with a solution.”
Zaidi added that former finance ministers won’t be able to improve the country’s economic conditions under such circumstances.
The former FBR chief said there is not much difference between the policies of former finance ministers Ishaq Dar, Abdul Hafeez Sheikh, and Asad Umar.
Zaidi said that Prime Minister Imran Khan has to make tough decisions. “He should step down if he is unable to do so,” he said.
