ISLAMABAD: Leader of the Opposition in National Assembly Syed Khursheed Shah Friday expressed his dismay over the federal budget 2015-16, terming it pro-rich.
Reacting to the budget speech given by Finance Minister Ishaq Dar, the opposition leader said that the budget proposals were made on IMF’s conditions.
“The only thing we heard in the budget speech was increase in taxes,” he said, adding that prices of common edible items soared. “This is a pro-rich budget. It has nothing for poor.”
