Economic survey reflects PTI’s anti-public polices: PML-N

Staff Reporter

The economic survey presented by Finance Minister Shaukat Tareen stands testimony to the fact that all policies of the Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf (PTI) government are ‘anti-people.’

In a statement issued on Friday, PML-N Marriyum Aurangzeb said that Prime Minister Imran Khan should have resigned prior to the presentation of the economic survey because the ‘incompetent’ and ‘corrupt’ PTI government’s finance minister had admitted during the presentation that there was an exceptional increase in the price hike, unemployment and loan borrowing.

It is to be noted that Finance Minister Shaukat Tareen presented economic survey on Thursday, one day ahead of the budget for the financial year 2021-22, presented in the National Assembly on Friday.

Marriyum further said not only that the government had also confessed to have pushed masses below the poverty line.

She further said that the PTI government in the survey had admitted that five million youth had become jobless during three years of its rule.

Similarly, she added, the PTI government had slashed expenditures on education both at the federal and provincial levels from 2.3 percent of the GDP to 1.5 percent.

“This exposes Imran Khan-led government’s claim of spending on people’s welfare,” PML-N spokesperson taunted.

She said under the present government the income of daily wagers and labourers reduced considerably.
