ISLAMABAD – PTI has presented another mini budget which has increased the prices of almost 24000 medicines which include medicines of heart and cancer. Finance Minister Asad Umer gave a press briefing yesterday to senior journalists saying that the government is preparing for another mini budget.

Economy has been the major issue which Imran khan led PTI government is dealing with ever since they came into power following the July 2018 General Elections. Finance Minister Asad Umer has probably the most difficult responsibility after Imran Khan himself. In their very first month after assuming power, Finance Minister Asad Umer presented a Mini Budget in the parliament which resulted in the increase in price of almost 400 daily use items.

Now, Finance Minister Asad Umer had a talk with senior journalists where he told that the government is preparing for another mini budget soon. In the upcoming budget, new taxes will be imposed and electricity and gas prices will also see an increment but it will be only for the rich and middle class and poor will not be affected by it.

Now that the mini budget has been presented, it has caused an increase in almost 24000 medicines of top importance. These include the medicines of first aid, life saving, heart, brain and cancer. Experts are saying that it will hugely impact the life of common man who will get affected by this price hike in important medicines.
