Miftah, flanked by State Minister for Petroleum Musaddaq Malik, at the press conference criticized the previous government’s policies.

He said that the PTI government’s policies have “deteriorated the country’s economy”.

“Imran Khan had deliberately reduced the prices of petrol by giving subsidies,” Miftah said.

“Currently, Pakistan, on every litre, was bearing a loss of Rs24.03 on petrol, Rs59.16 diesel, Rs39.49 kerosene oil, and Rs39.16 on light diesel oil,” he added.

The finance minister added that in the month of May, this loss had gone past Rs120 billion which is three times greater than running the expenses of the civil government, which amounted to Rs40 million.
