Islamabad: A Pakistani independent candidate for the July 25 general elections has declared assets worth Rs 403 billion ($3.31 billion), much more than the top political leaders.
Mohammed Hussain alias Munna Sheikh, an independent candidate from Muzaffargarh’s NA-182, shocked everyone after he declared his assets worth Rs 403 billion. Alarmingly, the candidate despite possessing a large amount of money never paid any taxes.
In his affidavit, Mr Hussain said he had 350 acres of land, gardens, three houses and household appliances. He said political representatives contest polls concealing their assets and deceiving the public.
He said he had revealed his assets honestly. The man also appealed to chief justice of Pakistan Mian Saqib Nisar to order probing assets of all the politicians of the country....
