PM Imran Khan rejected the federal budget.

Ex PM Imran Khan in his tweet on social networking site Twitter has rejected the federal budget as an enemy of the people and business.

Imran Khan said that the people and business enemies of the imported government reject the budget. Budget is based on unrealistic assumptions of inflation and economic growth. The sensitive price index has reached 24% today.

He added in his tweet that it is clear from the statistics that the inflation rate will be 25 to 30 percent and this inflation will destroy the common man while raising the interest rate will stop the economic growth.

In another tweet, he said that the revolutionary tax reforms made in our time are being stopped and poor friendly measures like health card and successful Pakistan are being abolished.

Old Pakistan’s unimaginable budget will put more burden and difficulties on the nation
