The government has several choices with IMF, either stop the thieft of National Gas, Electricity, petroleum products etc or increase charges on the nation, it choose increasing prices instead. It will next increase Taxation on the already taxed, instead of old taxing the untaxed owners of SUV , first class are travels, VVIPs etc so visible to everyone except themselves .
