Govt to get federal budget passed with allies support: Firdous


ISLAMABAD: Special Assistant to the Prime Minister on Information and Broadcasting Firdous Ashiq Awan says the government will get the federal budget passed with cooperation of allied parties.
Talking to reporters in front of Parliament House this afternoon, she said the government allies have given full assurance to the Prime Minister of their cooperation.
She said PML-Q is leading in the efforts for getting the federal budget and the budget of Punjab passed.
She said the opposition is playing a negative role in parliament by threatening not to let the budget passed.
The Special Assistant said the PTI government believes in supremacy of law and Prime Minister Imran Khan is committed to ensuring justice in the society.
She said that a VIP prisoner in hidden words asked for National Reconciliation Ordinance (NRO) in the National Assembly and said the process of accountability should stop.
“No one can escape punishment. This law applies to everyone. This is Imran Khan’s Naya Pakistan.”
“It was the prime minister’s determination to start the process of accountability from the powerful and it is a win for the prime minister that the powerful are in the hands of law,” she added.
Responding to a question about the notice sent by the Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP) to PM Imran Khan on his visit to Ghotki, Awan said, “I am surprised about the notice sent to the prime minister. The prime minister was in Ghotki to pay his respects on the passing of one of his minister. He did not speak to the media nor did he speak about the issues of the provincial government.”
“It is questionable that the ECP is not taking notice of the members of other parties participating in election campaign,” she added.
