Chairman PPP Bilawal Bhutto Zardari says the mini budget will bring tsunami of price-hike

Karachi, January 13, 2022 (PPI-OT):Chairman Pakistan People’s Party, Bilawal Bhutto Zardari speaking on the floor of the National Assembly said that the finance minister on one hand says that the previous governments are responsible for the sagging economy, and on the other has been the finance minister for those very governments.

Chairman PPP said that his amendment was long because the government is imposing taxes on numerous items and bringing a tsunami of price-hike.

Now, the finance minister has said that he is withdrawing taxes on several items like bread and laptops, which were suggested by Bilawal Bhutto Zardari, Shazia Marri and Raja Pervaiz Ashraf. However, the finance minister did not say that these amendments were presented by the legislators of the PPP. Chairman PPP said that the people of Karachi know the address of residence of the finance minister in Karachi and will head towards it to express their distress over price-hike of essential commodities.

If the finance minister is a representative of the people of Karachi, then he should also reject the mini-budget, side with the people and work with us.
