Iss ko bahar nikalo: Finance Minister to reporter during post-Budget press conference

ISLAMABAD: Finance Minister Ishaq Dar, who is generally imperturbable, went raged at a reporter during a post budget press conference when he was asked a question.

The minister was addressing a press briefing when a reporter interpolated and threw a question at Mr. Dar. In reply, the minister  hit back in an aggressive tone, saying ” Main briefing dey raha hoon ya app?” (Who is giving a briefing, you or me?”

Once the argument ensued, the finance minister asked reporter “this is not the way [to behave].”

Mr. Dar flew into the temper and said while pointing to the reporter, “Iss Ko Bahar Nikalo” (Get him out of here).

Some other reporters also rose to their feet and ruckus erupted during the presser. However, the issue was shortly resolved when some intervened to clear the air.

The minister was flanked by senior government officials including Punjab Chief Minister Shahbaz Sharif.
