PESHAWAR: Awami National Party President Asfandyar Wali Khan has said that Prime Minister Imran Khan’s statement about early elections will trigger more economic crisis in the country.

In a statement issued here on Tuesday, he said the prime minister’s interview had created many questions and confusion. He said early polls was not only a way of escape but would also plunge the country into further economic turmoil.

He said the prime minister gave an impression that opposition leader was making demands from the sitting government to be appointed as the head of the Public Accounts Committee. He termed record depreciation of the rupee economic terrorism and held Imran Khan responsible for it.

He said the government should give explanation as to who was responsible for the ‘economic terrorism’. He said the prime minister claimed that he was not informed about devaluation of rupee against the dollar and learnt through media.

He said there was lack of coordination between the Prime Minister House and the finance ministry.
