Finance Minister Asad Umar on Wednesday (April 3 ) said that we have to fill the big gap of debit and the country is near bankruptcy. “You are going to the IMF with these massive debts in toe for a bailout. We have to fill the big gap,” adding, “if you look at the numbers from PMLN time, there was double-digit inflation during PMLN time which we have thankfully not hit as yet” he said.
