ISLAMABAD - FBR Chief responds over media reports of rift in the government economic team.
Federal Board of Revenue (FBR) has denied the rumors about “any sort of rift in the economic team” of the government as chairman FBR is on leave.
“Any rumors of any sort of rift in the economic team is utterly incorrect,” said FBR in a statement, adding that the Chairman of the Board, Shabbar Zaidi is on a two-week leave, which will end on Friday.
The spokesperson of the FBR tweeted that there’s no rift in the economic team of the Prime Minister.
According to the statement, Zaidi is likely to come back to work on Monday (20th Jan). The leave was necessitated by Zaidi’s annual medical check-up in Karachi and some family commitments, the statement added.
His first-day business will include attending the Prime Minister’s interaction with all Pakistan traders.
