The government has directed the FIA to launch a full-fledged operation against dollar hoarding and speculative currency trade, tweeted Information Fawad Chaudhry on Friday.
He said the operation is being launched in coordination with State Bank of Pakistan and Ministry of Finance.
A day earlier, the information minister had advised Nawaz Sharif to “take advantage of the plea bargain law and return people’s money” in an exclusive interview with SAMAA TV.
“It has been over a week since Nawaz Sharif was released from jail and he hasn’t been to the hospital,” Chaudhry had said, adding that return people’s money and live in your home forever.
The information minister said that the government will not enter any deal with Zardari and Sharif.
