Miftah said the government has no plans to freeze the foreign currency accounts or Roshan Digital accounts or take over people private lockers. 

Miftah said: "We have never even contemplated these steps. Nor will we ever do it."

He further said the speculation on social media about this is wrong and coming from biased quarters.
