In parliament opposition parties have constituted a committee to accumulate support from the PTI’s allies against the ‘anti masses’ budget.
Maryam Aurangzeb PML-N spokesperson said that the committee will woo the Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf’s (PTI) coalition partners to help block passage of the federal budget 2019-20.
According to her, Shahida Akhtar Ali will represent the Muttahida Majlis-i-Amal (MMA) ─ a coalition of five religious parties including the JUI-F, Jamaat-i-Islami and others ─ while Ameer Haider Hoti will represent the Awami National Party.
PPP’s Khursheed Shah, Raja Pervez Ashraf, Shazia Marri and Sherry Rehman have been nominated by the party as members of the committee, while the PML-N has nominated Rana Tanvir, Rana Sanaullah, Ayaz Sadiq and Murtaza Javed.
In a recent meeting of joint parliamentary party, the joint opposition had decided to form a committee to contact and convince the PTI-led government’s allies against passing what they have described as an ‘anti-masses’ budget.
