Speaking to the media, Kashmiri said that loans were taken by the rulers and elite individuals looted institutions, but the IMF conditions were imposed on the poor and government employees. He warned that if the decision to privatise the postal department, schools, and other institutions was not reversed, they would stage a sit-in in front of the Parliament House in Islamabad.
