Tarin admits Imran took Rs20,000b loan: Marriyum


Minister for Information and Broadcasting Marriyum Aurangzeb on Sunday said that former finance minister Shaukat Tarin had finally admitted that Imran Khan during his four-year tenure as prime minister took Rs20,000 billion loans, which was 76 per cent of the total loan taken in the country’s history.

In a series of tweets, the minister said that many such confessions were yet to be made by Imran Khan and his party. Imran’s agreement with International Monetary Fund on strict conditions, taking the dollar price from Rs115 to 189 against the rupee, would be another confession soon, she maintained.

In addition to a sharp increase in inflation, unprecedented unemployment and economic catastrophe, the fruits of ‘carat’, ‘Khairat’ and corruption would soon be acknowledged, the minister predicted.

Marriyum’s remarks come a day after Tarin painted a gloomy picture of the country’s economy, saying that inflation and unemployment will further increase due to the “flawed” budget presented by the coalition government led by the PML-N.
