Kanwal Shauzab (Leader PTI):

The opposition has tried its level best to create hurdles in smooth broadcasting of budget speech. Despite of all the challenges and fiscal space available, the government has presented best possible budget aimed at to facilitate the poor community. Direct taxes have been encouraged and indirect taxes are discouraged. Imports are curtailed and efforts have been made to improve exports. It is also proposed to improve tax network and target for tax collection has been set to 35%. PTI has set an example of charity begins at home. The government has not increased the salaries of federal ministers. Our forces have voluntarily reduced their budget as they have confidence on the PTI leadership. We have also reduced non-development funds up to 50 billion rupees.
