Special Assistant to Prime Minister (SAPM) on Information and Broadcasting Firdous Ashiq Awan on Wednesday (June 19) while criticizing the leader of opposition in National Assembly said, Shehbaz Sharif delivered a speech for two and a half hours. Those who have back pain cannot lecture the public for such a long time. His speech started with him and ended on him.
She took a jibe at opposition and suggested to propose an amendment through a democratic process and not by force. She expressed the hope that the opposition will not secede its contact with the public and those who are sincere with the country will support with the budget.
She called the budget ‘guarantor of country’s security and defense and those issuing threats will not succeed in their ulterior motives. “If the parliament does not rid itself of this hostage-taking group, then it will be unable to empower itself to guarantee the protection of the fundamental rights of the people,” she said.
“The opposition is engaged in anti-Imran propaganda while the PM desires the rule of the law in the country. Those who have entered the house through illegal means cannot stop the way,” she observed.
Earlier Leader of Opposition Shahbaz Sharif delivered an uninterrupted speech and rejected the federal budget and asked for amendments. Speaking on the floor of the National Assembly, the opposition leader said the budget—the first presented by the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) government—was ‘anti-people’ and that it was dictated by the International Monetary Fund (IMF).
