ISLAMABAD: Another PML-N leader, Hanif Abbasi, has joined the anti-Miftah camp, accusing the finance minister of “neutralising the efforts” of Prime Minister Shahbaz Sharif to improve the nation’s economy, further indicating a rift within the party.After Abid Sher Ali, Hanif Abbasi has become another member of his own government’s detractors.
Abbasi claimed the prime minister was making tremendous efforts, but the finance ministry was sabotaging them during a press conference he attended on Friday with the heads of the merchants.He claimed that new levies were being imposed on the taxpayers and urged the finance ministry to stop robbing the populace.
The PML-N leader continued his diatribe by claiming that around 11 levies had been levied on industrial sector invoices, which may cause workers to leave the sector.Every sector, according to Abbasi, had been impacted by rising electricity costs. He added that it was really necessary to make judgments right away rather than going through committees.
He attacked the finance ministry, claiming that plundering could not support the nation’s economy.The PML-N leader asserted that a woman overseeing the finance ministry was frightening people, and that the finance ministry ought to address the problems rather than frightening them.
