PTI Secretary General Asad Umar on Wednesday said that the International Monetary Fund (IMF) is demanding the government to legislate on strengthening the system aimed at nabbing corrupt practices in the government departments. Taking to Twitter, Asad Umar said that even the international lender is worried that the money released to the country as a loan could end up filling the coffers of the rulers.

“Following changes in NAB laws, the IMF is demanding the government to strengthen the system that could nab corrupt practices in the country,” he said. It is pertinent to mention here that Pakistan on Tuesday received the Memorandum of Economic and Financial Policies (MEFP) from the International Monetary Fund (IMF) for the seventh and eighth reviews. This was confirmed by Finance Minister Miftah Ismail on his official Twitter handle. —INP
