PPP chairman thinks Premier distracting citizens like Caesar

Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) chairman Bilawal Bhutto Zardari said the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf-led government seemed to be under an illusion that by arresting critics it would be successful in deviating people’s attention from the anti-people budget.

Bilawal took to Twitter and criticised the government once again.

Since the federal budget was passed last month after a long deliberation in the National Assembly, the opposition parties continued accusing the government of having the budget for the new fiscal year passed through manipulation.

Bilawal earlier maintained the budget was passed through “rigging”.

He also feared the budget would push more people below the poverty line and create unemployment.

However, Prime Minister’s Adviser on Finance Dr Abdul Hafeez Shaikh had said handling current account deficit, strict austerity measures, helping downtrodden, facilitating industry, and mobilizing revenues were the five fundamentals of the budget.
