“A message has been sent to Ms. Farah, a response to the allegations will be provided soon,” said close aides to the first lady’s aid.
The first lady’s friend has come under fire following allegations of corruption by Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) leader Aleem Khan and the opposition.
Pakistan Muslim League (N) leader and former finance minister Miftah Ismail claimed on Tuesday that Farah was carrying a bag worth $90,000.
He made the comment after a photo of Farah went viral on social media.
In a press conference, Ismail said the PML-N leaders were saying the same things Aleem Khan had previously said about Farah.
The PML-N leader further accused Farah of taking money for the transfer of officials to Punjab.
“Who did that money go to?” asked Ismail, pointing out that the PTI asserted that Farah could not be corrupted as she was a “private person”.
“She may engage in corrupt activities because she is friends with the wives of public office holders. She was someone’s singer,” Ismail said.
Ismail also called the former chief minister of Punjab
“When Aleem Khan pretended to inform Imran Khan of Usman Buzdar’s corruption but Imran Khan kept him, who was paying Buzdar?” asks Ismail.
“Farah Gujjar, while using a Punjab government aircraft, had a bag which was worth $90,000,” Ismail alleged, adding that the cost of the bag was “16.2 million rupees” in local currency.
The PML-N leader further said that people were told to have “one roti” instead of two, noting that rising wheat and sugar prices were prompting people to buy just one roti. However, Farah Khan’s bag was worth Rs 16.2 million, Ismail said.
