The interim foreign minister, Abdullah Hussain Haroon, has said that the PML-N emptied the exchequer before leaving.
“The previous government signed [approved] Rs200 billion after 5pm on the last day of its tenure,” he said, while speaking to the media in Karachi.
He revealed that when the interim government took charge and opened the books, they realised that there was no money.
Haroon said that the interim government had to make payments and there was an immediate need for Rs3 billion. Meanwhile, the dollar rate started rising, he said.
