Siraj Rejects Agreement Between IMF, Govt

LAHORE: Jamaat-e-Islami (JI) chief Sirajul Haq on Sunday rejected the incumbent government agreements with the International Monetary Fund (IMF).

Addressing at an Iftar party hosted in his honour by the party workers, here on Sunday the JI leader said PTI leadership had placed the country in the hands of the IMF and handed over the keys of the national exchequer to global lenders.

The JI chief said that in the beginning, the government was of the view that it would not go to the IMF, adding that the government secured $8.5 billion from Saudi Arabia and UAE, yet it knocked at the IMF door.

“IMF will hijack Pakistan as their main target is to end Pakistan’s nuclear power,” he claimed. Sirajul Haq further said the PTI government was going to put additional burden on the masses in the shape of new taxes.
