Khursheed Shah seeks presenting IMF deal in Parliament


ISLAMABAD: People’s Party leader Khursheed Shah on Monday demanded from the government to present the agreement signed with the International Monetary Fund (IMF) in the parliament, ARY News reported.

Speaking to reporters in the federal capital Khursheed Shah criticized the PTI government said that “in the past Pakistan’s budget was prepared with consultation of the IMF, now the IMF will prepare the budget for Pakistan on its own.”

Commenting on the result of offshore drilling for gas and oil exploration in Pakistani waters, Khursheed Shah said nothing found despite spending 200 million dollars (on the project).

“(The government) has extracted oil from the people in the quantity, which could also be exported,” Shah said.

He said the opposition has no other way except to come to the same page.

Pointing to the government, the PPP leader said that their agenda is only to devastate the people and remain in government.

“ We are talking about improving the affairs of governance, not disrupting them. Running a government is the domain of politicians and not something a selected individual can do”, the PPP stalwart said.

It is to mention here that the opposition parties criticizing the government of Prime Minister Imran Khan for the poor performance of Pakistan’s ailing economy and signing an agreement with the IMF for economic bailout.
