Khusru Bakhtiar gets dressing down from PM Imran Khan
Imran Khan reprimanded at Makhdoom Khusru Bakhtiar the Federal Minister for Planning, Development, and Reforms. The minister failed to present an important file in today’s meeting of the parliamentary party of PTI members of the parliament. The file was said to be crucial for the budget 2019-2020.
The prime minister showed resentment at the minister for non-compliance to the official duties and called it an act of negligence. Upon this, the minister ordered his servant to bring the relevant file immediately and on his failure to do it instantly Khusru Bakhtiar lost his temper and dropped the anger at the servant.

“You have taken so long to bring this(file). Stay outside the room and keep my phone,” Bakhtiar shouted relentlessly at the elderly servant.
Today the budget was presented in the national assembly by Hammad Azhar of PTI. This was the first ever fiscal budget to be presented by the newly elected government of PTI. The budget statement came with an important announcement for slashing the salaries of cabinet members by 10 percent. The announcement was followed by the Army’s decision for not taking advantage of the increase in salary of officials for the coming fiscal year.
