Pakistan Govt bringing 'tsunami of taxes' through mini-budget: Bilwal Bhutto Zardari slams Imran Khan
Islamabad: PPP chief and opposition leader Bilawal Bhutto-Zardari criticised the PTI government in the National Assembly on Wednesday by saying it was bringing a "tsunami of taxes" through the mini-budget.
The burden of the PTI government's agreement with the International Monetary Fund (IMF) would fall on the common man, Bilawal was quoted as saying by Dawn News, warning that it would lead to "economic slaughter" across the country.
He also criticised the government over the State Bank of Pakistan (SBP) Amendment Bill 2021, which was approved by a National Assembly panel on Monday, saying that the IMF had demanded the central bank's autonomy during the eras of PPP and PML-N as well but neither party had agreed.
He said Leader of the Opposition in the National Assembly Shehbaz Sharif had talked about a national dialogue on the country's economy but the government refused because of its "stubbornness".
"The people of Pakistan can see what happens as a result of your decisions," the PPP leader said.
