KARACHI, Jun 10 (APP): The people of Karachi, while reacting to the federal budget 2022-23, said that the government presented a balanced and relief-oriented budget in spite of the challenging circumstances.

They opined that the budgetary decisions made by the incumbent government would not only help promote the national economy but also benefit the general public.

While talking to APP on the budget, a customer, Fareed Udin, who was busy in shopping at the Saddar area of the metropolis, said that rumours were circulating that a public unfriendly budget was going to be tabled but, in real, it was totally opposite in nature.
