“Nei­ther there was a men­tion of re­lief pack­age in the bud­get for Ra­mazan nor were any new hospi­tals or up­lift schemes for Thar an­nounced,” Izhar said.

He said op­po­si­tion could throw pa­pers and pen­cils on Chief Min­is­ter dur­ing the bud­get speech. Now it’s our turn to speak and gov­ern­ment would have to lis­ten pas­sion­ately.

“We com­pletely re­ject this bud­get which of­fered no re­spite to masses fac­ing hike in the prices of flour, su­gar, veg­eta­bles and other com­modi­ties,” MQM leader said.

He also pointed out that the bud­get did not of­fer any mega project for Sindh’s ru­ral ar­eas.

Mut­tahida Qaumi Move­ment leader terming it anti-peo­ple, said no re­lief was pro­vided to the masses.

Izhar, who is also leader of the Op­po­si­tion in Sindh Assem­bly, also high­lighted that the bud­get did not of­fer any mega project for Sindh’s ru­ral ar­eas, thus de­te­ri­o­rat­ing them fur­ther.

The MQM leader went on to ac­cuse the pro­vin­cial gov­ern­ment of “earn­ing com­mis­sion through cor­rup­tion and paving way for mafias in­volved in this prac­tice.”
