Bilawal blames Imran for hiding budget facts

 
June 18, 2021

ISLAMABAD: Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) Chairman Bilawal Bhutto Zardari called out Prime Minister Imran Khan for attempting to hide the facts of the ‘poor enemy budget’ by silencing the voice of the opposition, and asserted that no matter what tactics the PTI government stooped to, PPP will reveal the truth regarding the Budget 2021-2022 to the people.

“Using abusive language and hurling insults will not save Imran Khan from the public’s wrath,” he said in a statement on Thursday.

Bilawal said Imran set the minimum wage at Rs 20,000 and then imposed a tax of Rs 700 billion. “What does this say about the country’s development,” he questioned.

He said in one year, the true face of Imran Khan’s “Tabdeeli,” revealed as there has been a 17% reduction in the income of the common man and a 25% rise in the prices of food utilities. “It’s absolutely disgraceful that in a country where one in three children suffers from malnutrition, the incompetent PM has imposed a 17% sales tax on milk and allied products,” he said.
