Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif has said that Pakistan will stand on its feet after it will be free of the International Monetary Fund’s (IMF) chains. He asserted that the government had to agree to the IMF’s requirements.

While touring the Imamia Colony Railway Crossing Flyover in Lahore, Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif stated that by accelerating the pace of construction, the project should be finished in three months. Rana Tanveer Hussain and Caretaker Chief Minister Mohsin Naqvi were in Shehbaz Sharif’s company.

The caretaker administration is finishing the projects with great dedication, the previous government put a stop to the development projects, and all of these projects are for the benefit of the people, the prime minister stated in his remarks at the occasion.

The Prime Minister said that simplicity must be used in the current situation. He said, “Everyone makes Mistakes, Allah Almighty is merciful, but corruption might not be eradicated until the Day of Judgement.”

Speaking at the occasion, he said that there undoubtedly inflation exists in the country, which has made it tough for people to survive.

He continued, saying that the IMF’s broken deal has been placed in current government’s laps; if the IMF’s chains are removed, we will stand on our own; but, we must accept the IMF’s requirements.

The last need of the IMF, according to Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif, was to obtain cash from friendly countries. He said that Pakistan received $3 billion from Saudi Arabia and the UAE, while China had also rolled over amount.
