LALAMUSA: Pakistan Peoples Party Central Punjab president Qamar Zaman Kaira Wednesday said the party wanted to extend support to Prime Minister Imran Khan for the country’s economic stability, not for any NRO.

Kaira said earlier the party extended its cooperation to then political forces in the form of Charter of Democracy (COD) and now it could be in the form of Charter of Economy. Kaira lamented that the offer of the party was construed as we wanted some favour or an NRO. He said the party leadership had been and was facing court cases framed on fake grounds. Kaira said suitable political environment was essential for the smooth functioning of parliament. He termed the budget 2019-20 an enemy of the people, saying the economic woes of the people had exacerbated.

He urged the government to take back the budget, saying the party would highlight at every forum the economic troubles of the people caused by the budget provisions.
