LAHORE - Pakistan Tehrik-e-Insaf Vice Chairman Shah Mehmood Qureshi has alleged that the government has given excessive authority to International Monitory Fund in the country’s affairs as IMF is preparing Pakistan’s next fiscal budget.

Addressing an Insaf Student Federation function here on Sunday, Qureshi criticised the government and said culture of corruption had ruined the performance of public sector departments. “Not even a single department can be called corruption free”, he said.

He said the PML-N which claimed to break the begging bowl had given all authority to IMF to prepare the whole budget. He said the government had violated its own promise to finish working with IMF by doing so. He remarked that PPP was no longer Bhutto’s party. It has become Zardari’s party, he said.

He said that was the reason why PPP government in Sindh was willing to make an alliance with MQM in Sindh province.
