their assets in a period of few months.
Chief Minister welcomed the proposal of Imran and said that he has already declared hi assets when he returned to country after exile. Now the political leaders in PPP should declare their assets which are in Pakistan or in any other countries.
Shahbaz also emphasized on the bank defaulters, who got big amounts as loans and have not yet returned those loans. Chief Minister also expressed that the money of politicians which is in foreign banks should be brought back in this period of financial crisis.
