On Wednesday, Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) blasted the government for accusing it of writing a letter to the European Union (EU) to get Pakistan’s GSP+ status withdrawn, saying neither it had written any letter nor has any plan to do so.

Regarding a presser by Information Minister Attaullah Tarar, who accused PTI of writing a letter to the EU to revoke the country’s GSP+ status, PTI spokesman Raoof Hasan rejected the allegations. He said the minister’s accusations were “absurd, slanderous, nonsensical, and insane.”

He said there is nothing like that, as PTI’s founding chairman assured the International Monetary Fund (IMF) that it would release the second tranche of its bailout package to Pakistan last year.

He continued that the government, which had come into power through a stolen mandate, should bring back the stolen money that its leadership had stashed in foreign banks through money laundering.

“The “joker” [Tarar] should muster the courage to tell the truth that the IMF program was delayed due to Ishaq Dar’s stubbornness, which was even admitted openly by the then PML-N’s ministers,” he added.

He stated the sole objective of those so-called experienced ministers of PDM-II was not to give relief to the masses but to fill their coffers by ruthlessly looting the national wealth.
