The Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) announced on Wednesday boycotting the joint meeting of the opposition.

According to sources, the party reached the decision after witnessing the Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz’s ‘lack of seriousness’ during yesterday’s budget session in the National Assembly.

Earlier it was reported that the Leader of Opposition in the National Assembly Shehbaz Sharif delivered a thundering speech on the assembly floor, claiming the opposition would work together and not allow the PTI government to pass the “anti-people budget” for the next fiscal year.

However, when the Finance Bill 2021-22 sailed through the assembly on June 29, Shehbaz Sharif was absent from the session along with a majority of the PML-N lawmakers.
