Earlier, the Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf-led federal government had bowed before the International Monetary Fund (IMF), Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) Chairman Bilawal Bhutto Zardari had said on May 8 in a reference to the removal of the State Bank governor and Federal Board of Revenue (FBR) chairman.
“Will the IMF make decision about these key appointments,” he had questioned while severely criticising the government’s decision to appoint Reza Baqar as SBP governor and Shabbar Zaidi as FBR chairman.
