ISLAMABAD: Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) president, opposition leader in National Assembly Shehbaz Sharif has said that the mini-budget will bind our feet.

Speaking in the National Assembly on Tuesday, the PML-N president said that with the budget, our feet will be tied with shackles. “The finance minister had said that Imran Niazi would stand firm in front of the IMF,” he said.

The PML-N president said that the government has introduced mini-budget after seven months and taxes are being increased, adding that one thing that the PTI government has mastered is U-turn.

He said the PTI government is now imposing 350 billion taxes on the people already suffering from inflation.

He said that when Asad Umar was the finance minister, he imposed taxes of Rs 400 billion in the budget, while the duo of Shabar Zaidi and Hafeez Sheikh imposed taxes of Rs 700 billion and now Shaukat Tarin has come up with another Rs 350 billion tax mini-budget.

“Statistics show that imports will be the highest this year,” he said.
