Imran Khan blasts coalition government for their burdensome mini-budget.

Imran Khan was dismissed from office in April following a vote of no confidence. He warned that following the terms of the lender with Washington D.C. office wouldn't help Pakistan's faltering economy.

He sighed and complained that the mini-budget will just raise the burden on the citizens. As he looked the raising costs of utilities and pharmaceuticals many of which recently experienced huge prices.

Khan continued by pointing out that the nation was currently experiencing its most significant inflation in the previous 50 years and this mini-budget will lead to a rise in the price of petrol and energy. He further said While industrial production was increasing it has suddenly decreased the closure of Faisalabad's factories.

He strongly criticised PDM leaders like Fazlur Rehman and Bilawal Bhutto for organising marches against inflation while he was in office. But later approved prices imposed by the present government.

Imran Khan also claimed that the National Accountability Bureau (NAB) had been more effective during the PTI's tenure in office.

"During our administration the NAB recovered Rs480 billion compared to Rs160 billion under the PTI. On the other hand The current government has obtained 1,100 billion in pardons related to corruption charges.

The opposition has criticised Imran Khan's government which is expected to pass a controversial mini-budget today.

In his assessment of the economy of the country he highlighted that the Gross Domestic Product (GDP) and per capita income had declined. The rupee has lost 90% of its value against the dollar.

Khan said that our balances have gone below $3 billion putting the security of the country in danger. The nation's economic issues could not be solved only by taking more loans.

Furthermore the loans must be repaid. He expressed his unhappiness with the IMF bailout package's expectations and said that the distribution of the money will lead to the buildup of even more loans.

Pakistan would remain trapped in its existing state even if the IMF is approved.
