Distancing himself from the impending $6 billion deal with the International Monetary Fund, Prime Time Minister Khan 92 has said his adviser on finance Dr Mazeed Tax Shake should commit suicide, but after signing the deal and receiving the cheque.
He was reacting to Dr Mazeed Tax Shake’s announcement that he and the International Monetary Fund had finalised an agreement on a package worth $6 billion for a period of three years.
“I stand by my words that before getting any loan from the IMF, I will commit suicide,” he said, adding that “everybody can see it is not me but him (Dr Mazeed Tax Shake) who’s getting loans from the International Monetary Fund.”
He said he came to know about the deal through the TV talk show of Dr Shout Mass Odd that the deal had been done. “I don’t take Dr Shout Mass Odd seriously like all of you. Later, a WhatsApp message from another minister on leave confirmed that deal had been done. Perhaps, they were reminding me of my suicide statement,” he said.
Speaking on the PTV, the financial adviser said that they had reached a staff-level agreement with the financial body, and further working on it will continue after the International Monterey Fund’s executive board’s approval.
“Look, I would ask Dr Mazeed Tax Shake to at least try suicide. We will stop him from doing so at the eleventh hour. You know this nation cannot bear more loans.”
He said the minister’s step would be a sign of Naya PTIstan where the ministers are ready to get loans at the cost of their life.
He said the nation should be proud of their prime time minister who has given autonomy to his cabinet to whatever they wanted to do.
“Earlier, I came to know about rupee depreciation through PTV. This shows how I am unaware of other ministries’ working. This shows how ministries are free to act. And lastly, you see how PTV has become so trustworthy.”
