Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) leader and former finance minister Miftah Ismail lost his temper when a person accused him of committing corruption while in power, reported 24NewsHD TV channel.
Mr Ismail, who served as the finance minister for some months when the PML-N made a coalition government in April last, got furious after a journalist put an unwelcoming question regarding obtaining a BMW vehicle while being in the government.
“How can you dare to ask me such a question? Now you sit down, and listen to me. Which BMW, I have obtained?” this was the first response the finance czar gave to the questioner. Setting the record straight, the PML-N leader said he used to drive his personal car and bear fuel expense when he served as the finance minister.
“Whatever I have purchased, I have earned it due to my hard work. I did not obtain any BMW. People level false allegations.”
“I had to spend five months in jail over the false corruption allegations,” he recalled while commenting that false accusations landed people in trouble. “My wife and children cried when I was in the jail,” he said.
