National Assembly passes Finance Bill 2020-21
ISLAMABAD (92 News) – After debates and amendments,the National Assembly on Monday passed the Finance Bill 2020-21.
Prime Minister Imran Khan also attended the session. During the voting on amendments and clauses, a large number of members in the treasury benches started thumping their desks and chanting slogans in favour of the premier.
Earlier in the session, Minster for Industries Hammad Azhar said today’s session was meant to move amendments to the finance bill and pass it, yet the opposition was resorting to personal attacks. He accused the opposition of shouting “na manzoor” (unacceptable) even before the budget was presented in the parliament.
On the occasion, PPP Chairman Bilawal Bhutto Zardari has said that Prime Minister (PM) Imran Khan should better quarantine himself instead of taking notices.
While addressing National Assembly (NA) during the budget debate session, Bilawal Bhutto demanded the resignation of PM Imran Khan, saying that the premier should apologise for destroying the economy.
He maintained said that the premier has two options; either he works alongside all the political parties and strive for the betterment of the country, or he resigns and goes home.
Criticizing the government, the PPP chairman requested the prime minister to stop taking notice. “Whenever the prime minister takes notice of anything, its price gets increased. What are the consequences of taking notices of flour, medicines, petrol by the prime minister,” he asked.
On the other hand, PML-N leader Khawaja Asif said that the PTI government needed to be stopped from causing further damage. “They have increased the petrol price to Rs100 per litre. This will not only have an effect on petrol but they will now drop bombs on gas and electricity as well.”
