SIALKOT: PTI Deputy Information Secretary Usman Dar has claimed that defence minister Khawaja Asif works in a Dubai based company and he has not shown income earned from Iqama in his nomination papers and wealth statements filed by him with Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP).
“ Khawaja Asif works as legal advisor in a mechanical company at Dubai and he has not shown in his declaration of assets the income earned by him from Iqama. He is front man of Nawaz Sharif and he has afforded benefit to the project wherefrom he has obtained Iqama”, he added.
He said that he would resort to the Supreme Court to seek disqualification of Khawaja Asif.
Khawaja Asif has said he has declared his iqama before in ECP and FBR. “I receive the funds from proper banking channels from 1983,” he said. I am operating a bank account in Abu Dhabi since 1983, he added. Therefore, leveling false charges should be avoided, he held.
