Shaukat Tarin unveils Rs 8,487 billion budget


Minister for Finance and Revenue Shaukat Tarin on Friday presented the Federal Budget 2021-22 in the National Assembly with a total outlay of Rs 8,487 billion amid rumpus created by the opposition parties.

His speech was marred by the chaotic environment as opposition members chant slogans to interrupt his speech.

Presenting the budget, the finance minister said that many challenges came our way this year but we tackled them all under the leadership of PM Imran Khan.

“When the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) came into power, the previous governments had taken many loans,” he said and added no government had faced such a situation before. The current account deficit was $20 billion.
