Ahsan Iqbal says budget figures were not realistic

Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) leader Ahsan Iqbal said on Saturday that there was no value of the figures given in the national budget presented by the Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf (PTI) government on Friday (June 11) since these were all ‘fabricated’, reported 24NewsHD TV channel.

Addressing a press conference, he regretted that bills were passed in the National Assembly couple of days back by bypassing the opposition. “Despite the fact that members of the opposition protested, but all our protests fell on deaf ears,” he deplored.

“Particularly, the legislation has done to give Indian spy Kulbhushan Jadhev the right to appeal amounted to selling the ‘national honour and prestige’,” he said, and added that his party would never accept what he termed the ‘NRO’ given to the enemy country’s spy.

He questioned as to why was the government in a rush to get the bills passed? “Never ever in any democracy have the laws been passed in such a haste,” Ahsan remarked.
