Former finance minister and PTI leader Asad Umar known as out the PML-N and PPP leaderships for congratulating the nation because the IMF revived the Extended Fund Facility (EFF) programme for Pakistan.

On Monday, the IMF Board approved the much-awaited seventh and eighth evaluations of the stalled $6 billion Pakistan programme.

Finance Minister Miftah Ismail congratulated the nation for the revival of the IMF programme and thanked Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif for saving the nation from default.

But, former finance minister and senior PTI leader Asad Umar shared old statements of PM Shehbaz, Foreign Minister Bilawal Bhutto and other PML-N leaders over the IMF deal and said “now these shameless people are congratulating the nation over an IMF deal.”

Earlier, alleged leaked audio of PTI leader Shaukat Tarin and Punjab Finance Minister Mohsin Leghari surfaced on media wherein former finance minister Shaukat Tarin allegedly asked Punjab Finance Minister Mohsin Leghari to withdraw from the (IMF) deal, just two days after the Khyber Pakhtunkhwa government backtracked from it.

In another audio, Tarin could be heard asking Khyber Pakhtunkhwa Finance Minister Taimur Jhagra if he had written the letter.

“I’m on the way. I have the previous letter. I’ll send the letter to you after drafting it,” replied the KP finance minister.

Hatching a conspiracy against the IMF deal, Tarin directed Jhagra that the key point of his letter must be the floods devastations within the province.
