Former prime minister Shahid Khaqan Abbbasi says the country’s economy is on the verge of collapse but Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf’s (PTI) government had different priorities.

The Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz leader was responding to Information Minister Fawad Chaudhry's statement that the federal government was under pressure to strike deals with Nawaz Sharif and Asif Zardari.

Addressing a press conference in Islamabad, the PML-N leader said the government had failed to perform during its first five months in power.

Abbasi demanded the formation of a joint investigation team to probe alleged losses to the national exchequer due to "flawed policies of the PTI government".

In his address, the PML-N lawmaker claimed his party ended load shedding in the country but power crisis had emerged again.
