Punjab Governor Chaudhry Sarwar Wednesday criticised the agreement signed by the Pakistani government with the International Monetary Fund (IMF), saying that the money lender has demanded everything we own (as collateral) against the loans being given to us.
Speaking at an event of the PTI’s UK chapter, the Punjab governor regretted the loss of Pakistan’s sovereignty to the IMF’s tough demands.
Meanwhile, UK-based PTI leader Aneel Musarrat has also dismissed rumours of Mohammad Sarwar’s differences with the party.
When asked about the displeasure of the Punjab governor with the PTI, Musarrat said even siblings quarrel frequently.
Chaudhry Mohammad Sarwar had said earlier: “I never asked for the governor’s position but had been asked by the party’s leadership to accept it. When you are in a party, you have to accept the party’s decision and you cannot rebel against it. This was our party’s unanimous decision.”
Criticising the government, he said the outdated system had failed to address the needs of the people.
The Punjab Governor had said, “so far we have failed to bring judicial and police reforms”.
“A tragedy of Pakistan that we have not strengthened our institutions. Successive governments have failed. We run after the personalities and don’t think about strengthening institutions.”
