Govt making efforts to control depreciation of rupee



Minister for Planning and Development Ahsan Iqbal has said the present government is making all efforts to control depreciation of rupee as well as prices hike of petroleum products, gas and electricity.

Addressing a gathering of PML-N workers at Changowali village, Shakargarh, he said the recent price increase in petroleum products is result of the agreement made by PTI Chairman Imran Khan with the International Monetary Fund.

He said former PTI government signed an agreement with the IMF on difficult terms and the current government is bound to fulfill these conditions.—INP
