PML-N President Shehbaz Sharif has said that his prediction regarding the mini-budget on the IMF conditions has proved right and the government has once again proved wrong, reported 24NewsHD TV channel.

In a statement issued on Monday, the PML-N president said the government lied to the nation and parliament. He said the government displayed criminal negligence for not protecting the interests of the nation. The news of bringing a mini-budget on the IMF conditions raises alarm bells, he added.

He said he time and warned the nation that this government was proving hostile to the economic independence of Pakistan and the legislation regarding the GST would make our country slave and governor of State Bank a viceroy to the IMF.

Shehbaz demanded of the Prime Minister Imran Khan to tender resignation instead of bringing a mini-budget.

He called upon the government allies to raise their voice against mini-budget in the national interest. If the government approves a mini-budget, it means that it would seal the fate of Pakistan and its people in future as slaves.

He vowed to stop the government to bring an anti-people mini-budget and other harmful legislation with the help of united opposition. Mini-budget is a harbinger of death for the inflation-hit people, he said adding that it would further raise the prices of petrol, electricity and gas.

The PML-N president was of the view that with an increase in taxes, business would disappear, the volume of the economy would be shrunk and millions would become jobless.

He said a catastrophe of inflation had been unleashed and the only deliverance lay in getting rid of the present government.
