Karachi, June 13, 2019 (PPI-OT): Sindh cabinet members Syed Nasir Hussain Shah, Saeed Ghani, Makhdoom Mehboob ur Rehman and Barrister Murtaza Wahab has termed federal government budget another failure of PTI rulers and added that It was aimed to crush common men of the country who were already facing the hardships due to policies of incompetent government of selected Prime Minister.
Addressing press conference at Sindh Assembly media corner on Wednesday, they rejected the PTI IMF budget adding that it will add the miseries of already inflation stricken people of Pakistan. Advisor to Chief Minister Sindh Barrister Murtaza Wahab said that it was anti people budget and prices of all essential commodities which will strike hard at all segments of society particularly working class and added that no relief or subsidy was provided in the budget to nation.
He said that it was a IMF dictated budget. Now tax has been imposed on the fifty thousand income. He said that Pakistan Peoples Party has decided to stand with people adding they will take to streets to defend interests of common men. The Provincial Advisor added that failed policies of PTI rulers have compelled people to come to streets. Barrister Murtaza Wahab criticised Prime Minister’s Tuesday night address to nation and added that it was like his (Imran’s) container speech.
He said that worthy architect of Naya Pakistan doesn’t know how to address nation as prime minister then how can he run the affairs of diverse country like Pakistan. He made it clear that PPP requires no NRO. He added that our selected prime minister repeatedly remarked in his midnight speech that he (Prime Minister) will not give NRO to anyone while on other hand he himself had discovered NRO for Haleema Baji.
He said that selected prime minister has announced to form dangerous commission under him. He said that Mr. Prime Minister! You were trembling while addressing the nation, how can you head the investigation commission. He advised prime minister to start probe from 1999 and investigate the ten months tenure of PTI government who had destroyed the economy of country. ‘If you want to investigate then start with your aids who were sitting on your both sides,’ he added.
He warned PTI government that people will take to streets for safeguarding their rights. To a question, he said that Pakistan People’s Party had faced dictators and jails. They were not afraid of these tactics of puppet government of PTI. He said that PPP Co chairman Asif Ali Zardari will prove his innocence through course of law. His arrest was merely to pressurise him on key issues like NFC and 18th amendment, the advisor said.
