Pasban Democratic Party leader and an eminent economist, Dr. Shahida Wizarat slammed Imran Khan’s PTI after its first federal budget. She accused the government of shamelessly continuing the same outdated economic policies in ‘Naya Pakistan’.
Talking about the federal budget she said that the same failed economic managers are using the same old failed economic policies expecting miraculous results from these faulty policies since the 1990s. She even quoted Einstein saying that Einstein had defined insanity as “ doing the same thing over and over expecting different results.” Blaming the rulers and their managers for doing the same thing.
Calling Pakistan a resource-rich nation and mentioning that there are a lot of forms in which ample revenue can be generated in order to help the economy’s growth she criticized the authorities saying that it is regrettable that these precious resources and facilities of Pakistan are distributed to other countries free of cost be it friends or foes.
Apart from land and air routes, she mentioned that Pakistan has given its land and water to foreign water bottling companies without charging them. She even highlighted that Pakistan had been giving extremely expensive salt to India at very low prices.
She added that it is a sad situation that all our resources are given to other countries free of cost and our economy is run on loans acquired from foreign countries.
