Karachi - KARACHI: After failing to secure a Pakistan People’s Party Senate ticket from Sindh, former federal minister for
finance Dr Abdul Hafeez Shaikh has decided not to accept the responsibility of adviser to prime minister offered to
him by the government. Sources close to Shaikh told Pakistan Today on Saturday that the financial wizard was disappointed by the decision of the committee formed to decide about PPP candidates for the Senate from Sindh.
The final list of the PPP candidates from Sindh does not include Shaikh’s name. The sources said the finance minister had now decided to turn down the advisory role offered by the government and leave for Dubai.
