Manmohan Singh borrowed economic reforms from us in the 90s, says Pakistan’s Interior Minister

Pakistan’s Minister for Planning and Development Ahsan Iqbal, who is also the Interior Minister has said India ‘borrowed Pakistan’s economic and reforms plans and implemented them successfully while we squandered the opportunity largely because of political instability.’

According to a report in the Express Tribune, Iqbal, while speaking at the inauguration of Pakistan National Centre for Cyber Security in Islamabad said that during the 90s then Indian finance minister Manmohan Singh borrowed economic reforms strategies from his Pakistani counterpart Sartaj Aziz and successfully implemented them in India.

He said Bangladesh also successfully used the same strategies but Pakistan could not put its own plans to use as the decade was lost to political instability.
