Former prime minister Imran Khan has rejected the federal budget, 24NewsHD TV channel reported Friday.The imported government has presented the anti-people and anti-business budget, he tweeted,

The budget is based on unrealistic assumptions about inflation (11.5%) and economic growth (5%). Today’s Sensitive Price Index (SPI) of 24% indicates that inflation will be between 25/30% which on the one hand will destroy the common man,”

 “And on the other hand, retard economic growth due to high-interest rates. All our progressive tax reforms and pro-poor programs such as Sehat card, Kamyab Pakistan are being shelved. It is an unimaginative, Purana Pakistan budget creating more burdens and misery for the nation,” Khan concluded.
