Govt not ready to address smaller provinces’ deprivations: Khursheed Shah

Khurshid Shah

ISLAMABAD: Leader of the Opposition in the National Assembly Khursheed Shah on Thursday said that things would take a turn for the worst if only one province was given preference adding that the PML-N government is not ready to address the deprivations of the smaller provinces.
While speaking in the National Assembly, Khursheed Shah rejected the fiscal year 2018-19 budget presented by the incumbent government. He said that the government had no right to present a full year’s budget when its tenure was due to end on May 31. “Budget allocation is serious business, you can’t just present it to get it off your shoulders,” he lamented.
Khursheed Shah continued to say that the Pakistan Peoples Party wants to create a strong federation.
“The circumstances will worsen if the mandate is not respected,” said Shah, stressing that nonpolitical mindsets should cease to exist.
