“We reject this anti-people & anti-business budget presented by Imported govt. Budget is based on unrealistic assumptions on inflation(11.5%) & economic growth(5%). Today’s SPI of 24% indicates that inflation will be between 25/30% which on the one hand will destroy the common man”, he said.

“And on the other hand retard economic growth due to high-interest rates. All our progressive tax reforms and Pro-poor programs such as the Sehat card, and Kamyab Pakistan are being shelved. It is an unimaginative, Purana Pakistan budget creating more burdens & misery for the nation,” he added.

 

For this year, the budget’s outlay is Rs9,502 billion.

Which is almost a trillion rupees higher than last year’s outlay.
