The next budget would properly reflect what the people expected from the provincial government, he said, adding, hat the next budget would protect the due share of the people through a just resource-distribution formula and the implantation strategy through a well-directed roadmap.

The chief minister said the provincial government decided to set its priorities in view of the background, the people expectations and the need-driven approach.
