It appears that Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf (PTI) government is unhappy at the performance of Federal Board of Revenue (FBR) chairmen as it has changed the revenue body heads for sixth time in three years, replacing Asim Ahmad with Dr Muhammad Ashfaque.

According to 24NewsHD TV channel, the development came on the same day Special Assistant to Prime Minister (SAPM) Imran Khan on Finance Dr. Waqar Masood resigned following differences developed over the International Monetary Fund (IMF) programme.

Sources told 24News that Dr. Masood wanted raise in electricity tariff which was opposed by Minister for Finance Shaukat Tarin.
