Miftah takes dig at govt for freezing fuel levy without prior IMF approval

Former finance minister Miftah Ismail did not hold back from criticising the government for not taking the International Monetary Funds into confidence before freezing petroleum development levy (PDL). He termed the decision of the government as “reckless”.

Although, he did point out that what the PTI-led government was unforgivable. According to Miftah, the PTI did not only not fulfill its agreement, but vibrantly went on to violate it by decreasing the PDL and freezing the petroleum prices for four months.

He said that the PTI nearly bankrupted the entire country.
