“One of the reasons is also very much external interference in the banks affairs trying to influence my independence in decision making”, he said

While talking to this correspondent, he said that there was a lot of tension in the board, no decision was being taken by consensus and the government members kept making their own decisions due to the majority, while the private members could not stop the wrong decisions due to being in the minority.

He said that there was a lot of interference in the bank during the tenure of the PTI government, so I should resign beforehand. It may be recalled that the MD and senior executive officer had also resigned due to differences in the bank.
