Prime Minister Imran Khan has claimed that the government could not provide relief to the people of the country as all resources were utilized for economic recovery and now that it has taken place, the focus of this year’s budget is on providing relief to the weaker sections.
“After this budget, the pace of development work across the country will accelerate. Our priority is the farmer. We are eliminating the role of middleman,” Premier Imran said during a federal cabinet meeting on Friday.
According to sources, the Pakistan Muslim League-Quaid members did not attend the meeting.
Talking to the parliamentary party, PM Imran said, “When we came to power, the economy was in the worst condition. We could not provide relief to the people in the first two years due to the recovery of the economy.
“I am also aware of the problems faced by you [members of the assembly] … you have faced the most public reaction.”
