- Senator urges PM to sale half of Pakistan’s loans to time-tested friend China after taking the parliament into confidence
ISLAMABAD: Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) Senator Rehman Malik on Sunday penned a letter to Prime Minister Imran Khan on the current economic quagmire.
Rehman Malik, in his letter, urged PM Imran Khan to craft a ‘national economic strategy’ in order to bring the country out of the prevalent economic crisis. Malik also urged Khan to constitute a national consortium of Pakistan-based banks which will bear the burden of 1/4th of the total foreign loans.
Rehman suggested the PM to sale half of Pakistan’s loans to time-tested friend China after taking the parliament into confidence.
“Mega-commercial plots should be made available on main thoroughfares and then they should be sold to overseas Pakistanis,” asserted Rehman, urging PM Khan to constitute separate parliamentary committees on financial matters, security matters and issues pertaining to foreign policies.
The senator said that without entering into the blame game of holding one and other responsible for the current economic crisis in the country, all the main stakeholders in the country should join hands and help devise a strategy to steer the country out of the current situation.
