Imran Khan reiterated that the head of state is answerable and not above the law. “Our government has presented its first-ever budget. This is the budget which will reflect ideology of New Pakistan. New Pakistan will be built on principles of the state of Madina. Remember! Pakistan is going to be a great country. The Madina state was a model state. It is sorrowful that the principles exist only in Western world.”
