Shehbaz on upcoming budget

In another development, PML-N President Shehbaz on Thursday issued important instructions to the economic advisory council of the party regarding the upcoming 2021/22 budget session.

He said his party would oppose the budget-making and put up a resistance in the passage of the anti-people budget.
