Budget 19-20: Opposition members move cut motions on finance bill proposals

252 0

As the National Assembly session held to debate the finance bill resumed on Wednesday, members of the opposition began moving cut motions seeking changes to budget proposals, which will be voted on by lawmakers in the House today.

Prime Minister Imran Khan is in attendance today, while opposition ranks appear thin as several PPP, PML-N and other leaders are gathered at a hotel in Islamabad to attend a multi-party conference held to discuss a joint opposition strategy against the ruling Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf.

MNAs Ali Wazir and Mohsin Dawar are absent from the Lower House as they remain on judicial remand in the custody of the Counter-Terrorism Department despite calls by various members of the opposition to the speaker to issue their production orders.

Earlier today, Minister for Revenue Hammad Azhar moved various demands for grants that were approved through a voice vote.
