ISLAMABAD (APP) – Federal Minister for Information and Broadcasting Chaudhry Fawad Hussain on Tuesday termed the Finance Supplementary (Amendment) Bill 2018 a historic step to put the economy on the track.

Talking to media outside the Parliament House, he said that the country was facing financial crisis due to the mismanagement and wrongdoings of the previous governments, whose members were now sitting on the opposition benches in the house.

He said had these opposition parties during their respective tenures performed well, today the country would not have been facing any financial crisis.

Fawad said that only the financially strong people would pay more taxes, and dispelled the perception that the poor would have to face inflation.

About setting up of Parliamentary Commission, he said it seemed that opposition was not clear about its objectives. He said that those who had lost the election would never accept the results.

He said many things would come out, if an inquiry was held since the 1990 elections.

Explaining the refugees issue, he said that those who were born in Pakistan should be given nationality, adding that there was a need to demonstrate large heartedness in this regard.
