Imran Khan, a former leader of Pakistan, ordered Finance Minister Miftah Ismail to contact the International Monetary Fund (IMF)

And request assistance as the death toll from catastrophic floods in the nation surpassed 1,000 on Saturday with no end in sight.

In response to Miftah Ismail's criticism of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa Finance Minister Taimur Jhagra on the IMF deal, the PTI president reportedly said:

"Taimur Jhagra is seeking the right of the province and asking time for meeting with finance minister for the previous two months."

During the COVID-19 pandemic, the PTI government requested assistance from the IMF. In these trying circumstances,

"I would urge Ismail to have the guts to approach the IMF and ask for assistance", Imran Khan remarked.

Miftah criticised the PTI leaders for putting the country at risk when it is already hurting from the destruction brought on by flash floods

He slammed Taimur Khan Jhagra for "jeopardising" the IMF programme, according to ARY News.

The State Bank of Pakistan and the Federal Revenue Minister Miftah Ismail have also been encouraged by a business advocacy group

The advocacy group claimed that given the circumstances in the nation, the IMF's financial plans are unlikely to be adequate.
