He said that the Nawaz Sharif government had successfully completed the IMF agreement in its last tenure and PMLN after coming to power would complete it again. Despite PMLN’s majority in the Punjab elections in the 2018 elections, he said his party was not allowed to form a government in Punjab because of horse-trading by the PTI. Ikhtair Wali said Imran Khan’s wrong policies have burdened the country with huge debt.
