ISLAMABAD (Dunya News) – Pakistan Muslim League Nawaz (PML-N) leader Shahid Khaqan Abbasi challenged the Prime Minister and said that his government has lost all faith and trust of its allies.
According to details, opposition members protested against the government’s policies and budget on Islamabad’s constitution avenue. On this occasion, the members were holding anti-government placards in their hands.
Talking to media, Shahid Khaqan Abbasi said that the opposition has rejected the budget and it is protesting in the streets in solidarity with the public.
The former Prime Minister said that in his 32 years in politics, never before has he heard such nonsense on the floor of the House. He also accused the Speaker of not remaining neutral in the National Assembly.
"Where is the government taking the country?" He asked. The economy is all but destroyed, commissions and committees have been ineffective in bringing sugar prices below Rs 90 per kg and Petrol price increased by a record 34%. The government is completely oblivious to the challenges at hand, he added.
Khawaja Asif also said that the government could not even obtain a simple majority during the budget approval, meaning it has lost the trust of its allies. He warned that due to the budget, inflation will run rampant in the near future.
