Government Tries to Pacify PPP Amid Disagreements on Budget 2024

News Desk3 weeks ago

The party led by Bilawal Bhutto has accepted an invitation from the government to participate in another round of negotiations, according to sources who spoke with ARY News.

Sources claim that the two parties have decided to carry on with the dialogue process, and tomorrow the PPP delegation will meet with officials from the government.

According to the sources, the previous round of negotiations between the government and the People’s Party concluded without a resolution. PPP has made the decision to stand by its demands, which include the resolution of the Public Sector Development Programme (PSDP) problem.

According to reports, the PPP has pledged to keep protesting until its issues are resolved, and they believe that Aseefa and Bilawal Bhutto’s absence from the budget session sends a strong message.

The federal budget for relief, totaling Rs18.877 trillion, was proposed by Finance Minister Aurangzeb for the fiscal year 2024–2025.

The PPP expressed concerns over the development allotments, which caused the budget session to begin almost two hours later than expected.
The PML-N was able to appease the party led by Bilawal Bhutto, despite their prior decision to skip the Pakistan Budget 2024 session of the National Assembly.
