Govt desires to engage with opposition, steer country out of challenges: Firdous Awan

Special Assistant to Prime Minister on Information and Broadcasting Dr. Firdous Ashiq Awan says PTI government will get the federal budget 2019-20 passed on the basis of its numerical majority in the National Assembly.
According to details, Firdous Ashiq Awan said the opposition parties and other parliamentarians must also realize that the passage of the budget is a constitutional and national requirement.
The Special Assistant said the people will not take to the streets on the call of the opposition parties.
She said both the PML (N) and the PPP are responsible for the problems faced by the country and the people today.
She, however, said that it is our desire to engage with the opposition and steer the country out of challenges.
Meanwhile, in a tweet, Special Assistant to Prime Minister on Information and Broadcasting said opposition is doing politics on budget and hindering the path of constitution.

ملکی گورننس اور اداروں کی ورکنگ بجٹ کی منظوری سے جڑی ہوئی ہے۔پارلیمان کا چلنا اور اپوزیشن کی تنخواہیں بھی بجٹ کی منظوری سے آتی ہیں۔ملکی معیشت کا بیڑہ غرق کرنے والے کیا عوام کو مزید تباہ حال کرنا چاہتے ہیں ؟
