Toronto: (By Sheraz Khan) Condemning the 2020-2021 budget as anti-people and anti-minorities Khalid, Gill vice president PPP Canada and former ticket holder for national and provincial assembly seats in the 2008 general elections has said that the incumbent rulers are out of touch with the issues confronting common man in Pakistan.

Gill stated that the government would not have presented this budget if it had heeded to the constructive criticism of PPP Chairperson Bilawal Bhutto Zardari of the misplaced priorities of Prime Minister Imran Khan and the PTI's government.

Gill stated that Bilawal Bhutto Zardari has correctly termed the budget as “oppressive.”

"The 2020-2021 budget is a recipe for disaster. It will plunge the people of Pakistan deeper into poverty. It will see unemployment soar", said Khalid Gill.

A PPP government would have ensured a raise in salaries and pensions of the people, said Gill.

The people of Pakistan would foil all conspiracies against Pakistan People’s Party and the enlightened people of Pakistan will make sure that Bilawal Bhutto Zardari becomes the country's Prime Minister in the  2023 general elections, said Gill.

Gill, a former Chairperson of Christian Liberation Front, and a life-long advocate for Christians and minority rights regretted that the government has failed to give any relief to minorities in the budget.

The failure of the government in specifying any amount for minorities' welfare in the budget shows where minorities stand with respect to its priorities.

Gill reiterated his demand to restore the Federal Minister for Minorities and urged rulers to implement the 5% job quota for minorities across the board from jobs in the federal cabinet to diplomatic services to the police and the judiciary.

Pakistani Christians and other minorities he said are the sons and daughters of the soil, he said.

A complete absence of any funds allocation for minorities in the 2020-2021 budget shows that Prime Minister Imran Khan’s government has taken another U-turn vis-à-vis giving relief to minorities.

The PTI government failed to deliver Christmas funds to Christians, and now it has deepened the sense of deprivation amongst Pakistani Christians and other minorities by not allocating any funds for minorities in the 2020-2021 budget, said Khalid Gill.
