ISLAMABAD: Praising Finance Minister Ishaq Dar, Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif on Wednesday said that the government's budget for fiscal year 2014-15 will provide relief to the public.
“Dar had sleepless nights while he was preparing the budget. I’m sure good things will follow,” the premier said while addressing a ceremony of Youth Business Loan Scheme in Islamabad.
He said the government had little time to prepare its first budget last year but still managed to meet some key targets for the outgoing fiscal year.
“The glass is 90% full and it is unfair to just point out the empty space,” the prime minister stressed.
Further, the prime minister said that the government is working day and night, and the results can be seen by the public.
“How can we have confidence in those who are unable to display results for their [respective] provinces?” the prime minister asked while referring to criticism by opposition parties.
Prime Minister Nawaz said that the government started the loan scheme to provide the youth with opportunities to make themselves financially stable.
“Big businesses easily get loans but deserving people with little resources are not assisted adequately,” he said, adding that there are numerous talented people in the country who can change the fate of the nation.
