Information Minister negates impression that Prime Minister’s assets has risen substantially

Islamabad, December 28, 2013 (PPI-OT): Senator Pervaiz Rashid, Spokesperson of the Prime Minister, the Federal Government and Minister for Information and Broadcasting has negated the impression that the assets of the Prime Minister Muhammad Nawaz Sharif have risen substantially. He clarified that people are confusing the cost of assets and the present value of the assets.

The Asset Declaration Statement was submitted by the Prime Minister on 30th June, 2013 and hence it covers few weeks period after formation of the Government. It is very natural that value of already acquired assets, both movable and immovable, increase over a period of time and hence there is no point of discussion.

While referring to a statement of Munawar Hassan, Ameer Jamat-e-Islami, Senator Pervaiz Rashid said that he has been wrongly advised by his party colleagues which has lead to wrong statements. “I hope that he will refrain from unsubstantiated and wrong statements which belittles his image in the country and within his party”, said the Minister Information and Broadcasting.
