ISLAMABAD: Federal Finance Minister Ishaq Dar has stated that the Opposition parties have intended to hit the streets as they can clearly witness their dark future ahead, further adding that the accountability of those who looted the country was only possible through the Commission of Inquiry Act.

Federal ministers lambasted the Opposition in a joint press conference held on Friday. Ishaq Dar said that those associated with the Opposition parties were given immunity from accountability in the bill presented by the parties and that a single person was targeted through the bill.

‘The public rejected the Opposition’s idea of hitting the streets once and will reject it again,’ Dar said. Federal Minister for Law Zahid Hamid said that such a robust bill concerning the formation of a commission was never introduced before.

National Party of Pakistan president Senator Hasil Bizenjo and Minister of State of Information Technology and Telecommunication Anusha Rahman stated that the Opposition has termed Prime Minister (PM) Nawaz Sharif guilty in the Panama Papers despite the fact that he was never named in the issue.
