Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) Chairperson Bilawal Bhutto Zardari and Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) Vice President Maryam Nawaz Sharif on Sunday (June 16), decided to strongly oppose the budget presented by the government for the upcoming fiscal year.
Bilawal traveled to Lahore on the invitation of Maryam to meet her and discuss, as per sources, the contemporary political situation following the announcement of Federal Budget 2019-20.
In the meeting attended by the close aides of both political parties’ leaders, the two young leaders agreed not to let the Federal Budget 2019-20 be passed and decided to develop a plan of action in this regard. They also decided to go ahead with their political strategy in line with the spirit of the democratic constitution.
A joint notification issued shortly after the Maryam-Bilawal meeting read: “Lengthy consultations took place between the two leaders.
“Leaders from both the parties were part of the consultations [wherein] the current situation of the country was analysed in detail,” it added. “Both [Maryam and Bilawal] agreed that all aspects of life in the country are on a downtrend. “Country is being pushed into deep quicksand of economic deterioration [and all economic indicators pointing to an extreme crisis,” the notification added.
