ISLAMABAD (ENN) Chairman Pakistan Peoples Party, Bilawal Bhutto Zardari addressing a press conference at the Zardari House Islamabad on Wednesday said that the whole budget session was an insult to the people. Due to the role of the government and the attitude of the speaker, what should have happened did not happen. We were deprived of our rights, we could not even bring a record. The people want to hear what is happening in Lahore, Quetta, Karachi and Multan. You had to give a three year record, you are lecturing us, and you are trying to fool the nation. All the ministers were cheering on this kind of budget.
Chairman PPP said that every step made by the government is benefitting the rich not the poor. Assembly employees are committing suicide. The people for the past three years have been hearing the same thing over and over again.
The public doesn’t want to hear about the NRO and how bad it was before. You have given tax amnesty for these people. This budget is also NRO, there is relief for the rich and distress for the poor. The people must have confidence in the state and democracy. You are giving arrest powers in the name of FBR.
Chairman PPP said that the PM should give account for past three years, not say what he will do next. Now the Prime Minister has no time, the people will hold him accountable. We will hold you accountable for all these wrongdoings. Instead of telling stories, the speech should tell us the solution to problems.
Chairman Bilawal said that Asad Qaiser has been the worst speaker in the country’s parliamentary history. Leader of the House means accountable to the nation and parliament. Shahbaz Sharif could not attend the session due to a death in his family. It is hoped that JUI-F and PML-N will issue show cause notices to their members. Will send notices to members who were not in the House.
No other agency should interfere in the work of NAB. Unless the chairman and all officers bring their assets, they have no right to check the assets of others.
