Finance Minister Ishaq Dar on Saturday took a swipe at former prime minister and PTI Chairman Imran Khan for his criticism of Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif’s handling of economy. He said Imran brought country’s economy to the precipice making it 47th from 24th largest economy of the world due to his inability and bad governance, reported 24NewsHD TV channel. 

In a series of tweets which Dar wrote in reply to Imran Khan’s yesterday tweet, he said: “Irresponsible tweet of Imran Khan is designed only to damage the country’s security situation and vitiare the political atmosphere. His destruction of Pak Economy from World’s 24th largest to 47th in 2022 speaks volumes of bad governance, incompetence, unprecedented debt accumulation, mismanagement and corruption-led rule which caused high inflation and unbearable miseries for the people of Pakistan. Everyone knows, he is a selfish, narcissist, megalomaniac who since his constitutional removal from PM-office has gone berserk.” 

“The contrast between PM Shehbaz Sharif and IK cannot be more stark. PM SS invited him as Leader of a political party for a national dialogue on security subject and National Action Plan which effects [sic] every Pakistani and IK’s response in this uncouth and crass manner is shocking.” 

“Regrettably, IK would prefer seeing the Country go down than live honorably in opposition!”

PTI Chief Imran Khan tweeted on Friday: “I dont recognise this Imported Govt installed thru conspiracy & horse trading. How can SS be so shameless given his govt's destruction in 10 mths of our economy & democracy with brazen fascism,end of fundamental rights & rule of law; & allowing terrorism to spread under its watch.”
