The Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) has berated the ruling Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) and Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) for a ‘Muk-Muka’—collusion—over the recently approved budget.

According to PTI, the two parties put on a brief charade of discord before joining hands to push the budget through.

Just a day after the PPP and PML-N settled their differences, a PTI spokesperson lashed out at the coalition partners, accusing them of play-acting to win public sympathies. He said both parties were merely putting on a show, pretending to be at odds over the federal budget, adding that the public was not so easily fooled.

Party spokesperson Raoof Hasan said that PML-N and PPP have long been orchestrating such dramas and often abruptly end their so-called fights for their vested interests.

However, the PTI leader said that the Pakistani nation was cognisant of the fact that “these mandate thieves” had equally contributed to the economic devastation and financial carnage that had beset the country at present.

The PTI spokesperson stated that both parties had a long history of conveniently setting aside their differences to perpetuate their self-serving agendas in total disregard for any concern for the welfare of the people, democracy and constitution.

He averred that the PPP and PML-N being birds of a feather were devoid of any concern for the public welfare, saying they conveniently put aside their past differences to protect their personal interests by making a mockery of democracy and the constitution.

After several days of pretending battle, the spokesperson went on to say that they “clandestinely evolved consensus on the approval of the anti-people budget” because these two parties had nothing to do with public issues. He alleged that their past was tainted with conspiracies against democracy.

In addition, he said that the politics of PPP, the so-called champion of democracy, had been shrouded under the shadows of dictatorship since its very foundation and its animosity towards democracy was well-documented in the Hamoodur Rahman Commission Report.
