Opposition to form committee against anti-people budget

Islamabad: Senator Mustafa Nawaz Khokhar has said that Bilawal has thanked the Muttahida Qaumi

Movement (MQM) Pakistan for demanding to issue the production order of President Asif Ali Zardari.

In a statement, the spokesman to the Chairman Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) Bilawal Bhutto Zardari, said that

PPP thanks all those parties in the Parliament that have supported the demand for issuing production order of


He said that all political parties will have to play their role to strengthen the Parliament. Former President

Zardari empowered the Parliament and now it is the need of the hour to protect the powers of the Parliament.

Senator Mustafa Nawaz Khokhar said that Chairman Bilawal has announced to form an Opposition Committee

to stop the budget from being passed. The second letter demanding production order also has the signatures of

government coalition partners and the government is trying to pass the budget through dishonest means. The

government is not allowing Opposition Leader to deliver his budget speech, neither the production orders of

President Zardari, Mohsin Dawar, Ali Wazir and Saad Rafique are not being issued because the government

wants to deprive them of participation in the budget discussion and voting against the budget. Opposition is

fighting tooth and nail for the rights of the people.

It is essential to stop this government from passing this anti-people budget because the budget was suicide for

the country. Opposition parties will soon chalk out their strategies to stop the government from passing this

budget, he added.
