Ex PM Imran Khan Rejects 'Imported' Pak Govt's Fiscal Budget As 'Anti-people, Anti-business'

Former Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan on Friday slammed the new fiscal budget presented by the incumbent Pakistan PM Shehbaz Sharif-led PML-N government. Calling it “anti-people, anti-business,”

Imran Khan says that the budget is based on “unrealistic assumptions” of economic development and inflation. He went to lash out at Sharif’s cabinet for shelving “progressive programs” implemented during his tenure, adding that the budget will “create more burdens and misery” for the nation.

Imran Khan Tweets:

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