Allocating a proper budget according to the state’s benefit is one huge responsibility for the ruling bodies. The Pakistan Tehreek e Insaf government recently released its first fiscal year federal budget for 2019-20 after holding the drowning canoe of Pakistan. Opposition being the cry baby as always couldn’t pull off any barricaded strings for the Imran Khan lead political formation.
On Tuesday, Hammad Azhar who was appointed as the State Minister for Revenue presented the awaited budget for 2019-20. An increase in salaries of government officials was seen in every budget and that too with a high percentage but it was not the case this year. The ‘Naya Pakistan’ ranting PTI showed off a glimpse of its development process as there is no hike in salaries of PM Imran Khan and President Dr. Arif Alvi. The decision was taken with both the state representatives consent though they were already getting paid a little for their extreme efforts.
