KARACHI (92 News) - Former premier Shahid Khaqan Abbasi on Sunday said that the federal budget 2021-22 completely based on lies and the government is fudging figure.

Speaking to the journalists, the PML-N leader said that the government is befooling the people by fudging numbers, warning that the budget for 2021-22 has new taxes worth Rs343 billion.

"The finance minister says privatization will fetch Rs252 billion. No income is earned by selling assets. Show if there is a system to reduce prices in the budget," he mentioned.

Khaqan Abbasi said that when Imran Khan's government came, new taxes worth Rs1,200 billion were imposed in the country but despite that, only an additional Rs800bn could be raised.

Abbasi, providing his own figures, claimed that the government which was touting a 24% increase in income, could not increase income by 20% even in the last three years.
