Finance Minister Miftah Ismail declares Pakistan has been “saved from bankruptcy”

Finance Minister Miftah Ismail declares Pakistan has been “saved from bankruptcy”!

Finance Minister Miftah Ismail made the statement as he announced a raft of new measures which will be included in the budget for the fiscal year 2022-23.

“We have saved the country from bankruptcy by increasing the prices of petroleum products and by holding late-night dialogue with the Fund mission,” he said, addressing a press conference.

The finance minister added that the PTI-led government left the economy on the brink of a default and that too “only to remain in power”.

Miftah Ismail also claimed that he has never seen such a touch-and-go situation ever in his decades-long career.

He also informed the nation that the deal with the International Monetary Fund (IMF) over budgetary measures for the next fiscal year 2022-23 has been closed.

Addressing a joint press conference along with Information Minister Marriyum Aurangzeb, the finance minister took the nation into confidence over the Chinese loan and ongoing talks with the International Monetary Fund (IMF).

“It is a historic budget as we have neither increased indirect taxes nor imposed taxes on commodities or consumption,” he added.
