Minister justifies budget proposals

    ` Despite the Minister`s comments the budget however did not allocate funds for the Premier`s main platform pledge of bringing down the price of fertilizer to Rs. 350 and funds for providing meals for school children `

    Yes the Government will need an additional 170 billion rupees to carry out these and other promises!

    From where are they going to find the money?
