State Bank governor’s placement was IMF’s condition: Imran Khan

Prime Minister Imran Khan revealed at a consultancy session that placing State Bank governor was the compulsion of the government as the International Monetary Fund had put the condition.

The prime minister said, the reason for removing Tariq Bajwa and placing Raza Baqir as State Bank governor was to stop rise in the price of dollar and to improve the banking system in the country.

The prime minister rejected the objections, to Raza Baqir’s placement as State Bank governor, of the Opposition party, his party members and of other political parties.
