Stimulus package as large as Pakistan’s GDP: India on Imran offer | India News – Times of India


- Advertisment -

NEW DELHI: After Pakistani PM Imran Khan’s offer to extend the benefit of his cash transfer scheme to Indians, the government on Thursday reminded Khan that India’s recently announced stimulus package alone was as large as Pakistan’s GDP.
The foreign ministry said Pakistan was better known for making cash transfers to bank accounts outside the country rather than giving to its own people. “Clearly, Imran Khan needs a new set of advisers and better information. We all know about their debt problem (almost 90% of GDP) and how much they have pressed for debt restructuring,” the MEA spokesperson said.
“It would also be better for them to remember that India has a stimulus package which is as large as Pakistan’s annual GDP,” the spokesperson added.
Khan had offered to share with India Pakistan’s experience of implementing its “successful” cash transfer programme following reports of how poor people in India were battling poverty because of the coronavirus lockdown.
Khan said his government had successfully transferred Rs 120 billion in nine weeks to over 10 million families in a “transparent manner”. “I am ready to offer help and share our successful cash transfer programme, lauded internationally for its reach and transparency, with India,” he had added.
