Select group of bureaucracy appointed by PMLN is creating hurdles for PTI government
ISLMAABAD - Prime Minister Imran Khan while talking to a select group of journalists in Islamabad has criticised elements of bureaucracy and police appointed by the previous regimes for creating hurdles for the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) government at administrative level.
The prime minister elaborated that certain officers appointed by the previous government were involved in disrupting the policies of the government, however he has the necessary patience to deal with such matters.
Explaining the debt problem faced by the country, PM Khan revealed that the foreign debt had increased to Rs 36 trillion during the tenure of the last government, adding that the country would go bankrupt if the PTI government does not borrow money in next two months.
Approaching the International Monetary Fund (IMF) for a bailout is not a problem but rather the conditions that come attached to it, Prime Minister Khan said. He, however, said that seeking an IMF bailout would be the last option for this government as other options are also being explored.
“We are getting positive messages from both Saudi Arabia and China. Both countries have already been approached for financial assistance,” he added.
