ISLAMABAD:National Assembly resumed its session here at the parliament house on Thursday with Speaker Asad Qaiser in the chair.

Continuing his speech on the budget 2021-22, Leader of the Opposition Shahbaz Sharif said there will be further increase in poverty and inflation as a result of this budget.

He said 383 billion rupees of new taxes have been proposed in the budget, which would add to the woes of the common man. He also opposed an increase in the GST of dairy products.

He said we should work together in the best national interest whilst keeping our ego aside. He said responsibility rests with the government to reach out the opposition and create consensus on important matters for the sake of the people of the country.
