“Our first motive is to provide relief to the masses and to reduce the burden of inflation on the people and facilitate them,” he said.

“Our second motive is to protect the country from going bankrupt,” Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif said, adding that it has been devastated due to the “incompetency and corruption” of the previous Imran Khan-led government.
