PESHAWAR: Unlike the heads of other political parties who have declared massive assets, Jamaat-e-Islami (JI) Pakistan chief Sirajul Haq has declared the total value of his assets at Rs2.9 million.
According to the statement of assets that Haq annexed with his nomination papers submitted to the Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP), the JI chief has four tolas of gold and shares in 12 kanals of land and a private school.
He has a little more than Rs1.8 million in his three bank accounts and does not own a personal car or any property outside Pakistan.
According to the JI chief’s papers, he has never been a loan/debt defaulter.
A day earlier, Sirajul Haq had taunted Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) Chairman Bilawal Bhutto Zardari for declaring, what he said was, less than the actual value of his Bilawal House in Karachi, offering Rs5 million against the declared value of Rs3 million to buy it.
He said if Bilawal House’s value is Rs3 million then he is willing to purchase it for Rs5 million and said he will establish an orphanage there.
