Lahore: The telephonic conversation between PTI leader Shaukat Tareen and Punjab Finance Minister Mohsin Leghari has come to light.
According to Geo News, Shaukat Tareen told Mohsin Laghari that all of you have signed the commitment of 750 billion to the IMF, you have to say now that the commitment we gave was before the flood, you say Now because of flood we will have to spend a lot of money, you have to write now that we will not be able to fulfill this commitment, you have to write that and do nothing else.
On Shaukat Tarin’s request, Mohsin Leghari replied by saying yes.
Shaukat Tareen further said in the conversation that we all want pressure on them, they are bringing us in and accusing us of terrorism, they are going completely scot free, this cannot be allowed.
The former finance minister told Mohsin Laghari that Taimur is sending it in an hour, you can also send it to me, then we will send it to the federal government, then we will release it to the representatives of the IMF.
On Shaukat Tareen’s words, Punjab Finance Minister Mohsin Leghari asked if this will not harm the state. On this, Shaukat Tareen said that the way they are treating the chairman and others, is the state not suffering from this? Look, it will definitely happen that the IMF will say where will the money come from, they will come with a mini-budget, they are mistreating us and blackmailing us in the name of the state, we can’t help them. And this we have decided yesterday.
Shaukat Tareen said that we will ask the chairman whether it is to be released to the IMF or not.
On this, Mohsin Leghari said that there is no more powerful tool than social media, Shaukat Tareen replied that yes, we don’t need to release it, social media will do it by itself, Taimur was saying and I know his number two better. He will leak anyway, we will make a scene so that it is not seen that we are harming the state, if you will not be able to give then your commitment means zero.
