NA Debates Budget Proposals

Making an opening speech on the budget from treasury benches, Minister for Power Omer Ayub emphatically stated that the revenue target of 5.5 trillion rupees set for the next fiscal year will be achieved by the PTI led government.

He said the PPP and the PML (N) in their ten year rule indebted the country of twenty four thousand billion rupees. He said we have paid three thousand billion rupees this year only as an interest on the loans taken in the past.

Earlier, leader of opposition Shehbaz Sharif in his speech criticized the budget proposals.

Shehabaz Sharif and PPP Chairman Bilawal Bhutto demanded the speaker to issue production order of former president Asif Ali Zardari.
