KARACHI (Staff Report) - The Muttahida Qaumi Movement (MQM) on Saturday rejected the Sindh budget presented in the provincial assembly, declaring it ‘anti-people’.

He said a Ramazan package was nowhere to be found in the proposed budget, even though costs of edibles had been skyrocketing.

“Neither there was a mention of relief package in the budget for Ramazan nor were any new hospitals or uplift schemes for Thar announced,” Izhar added.

He also pointed out that the budget did not offer any mega project for Sindh’s rural areas.
