PPP Chairman Bilawal Bhutto-Zardari on Sunday criticised the recent budget and said that Imran Khan's government is afraid of the public's reaction to the "storm of heavy taxes imposed on them."
Bilawal added that the PTI-led government's decision to impose taxes on phone calls and then immediately retracting the decision shows that it is in a state of confusion.
He said that the decision to impose nearly Rs375 billion worth of taxes on the masses is an "injustice."
"The government did not spare a single item of the common man's use from taxes," Bilawal said, adding that the government is "robbing people" in the name of the ‘PTIMF’ budget, implying a budget proposed by the International Monetary Fund (IMF).
"I reject the government's PTIMF budget," he said.
Two days ago, Bilawal had condemned the budget proposed by the federal government, calling it an "economic attack on Pakistanis".
The PPP chairman, in a statement issued from Media Cell Bilawal House, had said PTI would not be permitted to "play with the nation’s future", vowing his party would not allow Prime Minister Imran Khan "to conduct an economic massacre of the people."
