PPP Demands Govt Should Address Parliament Concerns over IMF Talks

ISLAMABAD: The Senator of Pakistan Peoples Party Sherry Rehman demanded on Monday that the details of the bailout package with International Monitory Fund (IMF) should be submitted in Parliament.

Senior PPP leader urged the government to address the reservations of the opposition over the IMF bailout package and to disclose the terms of the agreement in Parliament.

“Why are the terms of the agreement being kept a secret?” she asked. “How much of a loan will the government be taking from the IMF and what are the terms?”

“This agreement means the budget for the coming year will be coming from IMF headquarters,” Rehman alleged.

“Are funds for the provinces being decreased at the IMF’s behest?” Rehman asked.

“Details of the agreement should be presented in Parliament,” the PPP leader asserted. “The government should maintain transparency and remove our reservations before the agreement is reached.”

On the other hand, in her reaction, another PPP leader Nafeesa Shah claimed that Imran should admit his finance minister lack of abilities.

She said that PM should take measures to provide relief to the general public, provision of employment to youths and five million homes.
