Labelling all businesspersons as mafias inappropriate: Asad Umar


From Correspondent

ISLAMABAD: Federal Minister for Planning and Development, Asad Umar, has said it was inappropriate to label all businesspersons as mafia, however, running personal businesses while being in the government could create a conflict of interests.

Asad Umar, while talking to media programme ‘Off The Record’, said that anyone involved in wrongdoing could be labelled but mafia or dacoit, however, it is totally inappropriate to bring all businesspersons under the same categories.

The planning minister admitted that it was possible to compromise on different matters amongst government institutions, however, the formulation of policies to benefit the business community in the country was no wrongdoing.

“Nawaz Sharif, Shehbaz Sharif and Asif Ali Zardari are owners of sugar mills, on the other hand, neither Prime Minister Imran Khan possesses ownership of any mill nor Asad Umar owns any company.
