Dar hands over his ‘Rs 5m’ watch to Jamshed Dasti


Finance Minister Ishaq Dar on Monday handed over his watch to MNA Jamshed Dasti following allegations leveled by the latter that the minister’s watch was worth Rs 5 million.

During the budget debate in the National Assembly, the finance minister removed his watch and handed it over to MNA Jamshed Dasti. Giving away the watch, the minister taunted the lawmaker saying that if Dasti gets even Rs 50,000 for the watch, he may donate it to some charity.

Ishaq Dar had the other day suggested the masses to prefer chicken on pulses for it is much cheaper.
