Shehbaz opposes supp finance bill

ISLAMABAD: Leader of the Opposition in National Assembly and President PML-N Shehbaz Sharif on Tuesday criticized the government for presenting the supplementary finance bill-2021 in the Parliament.

Initiating debate in the National Assembly on the Finance (Supplementary) Bill 2021 to amend certain laws relating to taxes and duties, he held that it would increase inflation and unemployment in the country.

He said the Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz leadership, during the budget 2021-22 debate in the House, had suggested to evolve consensus on a Charter of Economy (CoE) to improve financial health of the country.

Strict conditions of the International Monetary Fund (IMF) could only be avoided through a CoE, he added.

Shehbaz Sharif maintained that the PML-N government in 2018 left behind circular debt of Rs 1,100 billion, Gross Domestic Product (GDP) growth rate at 5.8 per cent and inflation at 2.5 percent, he added. | YouTube Channel
