Even though their market share has come down due to the advent of private and foreign banks, the public’s trust towards them is going up even at the time of economic slow down, he said and added that there is no need for any merger in this scenario. The government is getting away from its sphere so that they can introduce private participation in the name of which the country can be looted further, he accused.
