PUNJAB ASSEMBLY APPROVES RECORD 43 GRANT DEMANDS IN AN HOUR: RAJA BASHARAT

The Minister for Law, Parliamentary Affairs and Local Government Raja Basharat has said that the opposition in Punjab Assembly has badly failed to oppose the Punjab budget that shows it was a public friendly budget against which opposition found nothing to speak on. He was talking to media after budget session in Punjab Assembly on Tuesday.
The Law Minister said that the opposition had challenged to fail the government from passing budget but instead, it appeared first time in the history of Punjab Assembly that 43 demands of grants had been approved within one hour while it was also witnessed first time in the history that opposition could present only three cut motions for discussion. He said, “In the past opposition leader traditionally used to speak on budget not for two hours but for two or three days. It shows that the opposition has no concern with the public issues rather it prefers to address its own problems in the house.” Law Minister said that it was the first budget of PTI lead government, made among very critical economic circumstances created deliberately by the former government and the opposition raised a great roar on it but the acumen of Chief Minister Punjab Usman Buzdar and the effective discretion of the cabinet constrained opposition to be defeated in the house. He said that the budget would bring economic stability in the province and the austerity move initiated by the Prime Minister Imran
Khan would yield positive results in future.
