Finance Minister Miftah Ismail says the government is trying hard to control inflation and it will be overcome in two to three months.

Talking to a private news channel, he said it is responsibility of the government to put country's economy on right track.

He said to mitigate the deficit, the program's revival with International Monetary Fund is necessary to bring down inflation at earliest, for betterment of the economy.

He said, despite IMF conditions, the government is giving subsidy on oil, ghee, sugar and flour items for easing burden of poor people, and there are structural problems in the country as there is no one who had the will to resolve them except the incumbent federal government.
