ISLAMABAD: Federal Minister Science and Technology Fawad Chaudhry said on Sunday that the federal budget for the year 2019-20 has been passed but the real challenge is of collecting tax, which remains.
In a media address here at federal capital, the minister said that the government has repaid Rs9.8 billion in loans and immediate crisis is over.
Fawad added, the amount returned is more than the budget of Sindh.
PML-N leader Shehbaz Sharif has resigned from all the committees and remains the mere leader of the opposition, said Fawad, adding, that no one pays attention to Shehbaz Sharif even in the PML-N, adding that people are now leaving the party.
Maryam Nawaz is the one who ousted her own father from power, made him go to jail and took over the party leadership, added Fawad.
Fawad said, “Bilawal, Shehbaz and others kept on chanting ‘selected, selected’ while we got our budget approved.”
Within six months the financial condition of the country will improve, Fawad said, adding that the government will achieve new foreign policy goals.
