In Naya Pakistan, PTI-JI coalition presents Naya Budget

Imran-Khan-and-Syed-Munawar-Hassan

A lot of figure fudging and wrong calculations in KPK’s budget document. Higher education budget actually decreased this year.

KP Elementary & Secondary Education Budget increased from 20.96 to 24.6. This is an increase of 17%, not 33% as shown in the document

KP higher education budget fell from 3.45 to 3.4 billion, while the budget document shows an increase of 12.7%

KP health budget increased from 9.19 to 9.6. This is increase of 4%, not 18.2% as shown in the document.

Last time the Govt Salaries had 83 billion, now there is no mention of this. PTI-JI just changed the heads to look good on education. They have shifted 56.4Bn salaries from district salary head to education head. District salaries shown last year as 67.55Bn and this year 0.1Bn. Sectoral expenditure document show 56.44Bn in salaries for elementary and secondary education institutions.

All percentage increases shown in Table on page 3 are completely wrong.

In other words, all this noise by PTI-JI activists and lovers over Khyber Pakhtunkhwa’s educational budget increase is actually cosmetic, much like army shifted salaries out of defence budget.

This Express Tribune report 1000% increase in KP’s education budget shows the poor level of professional journalism in Pakistan.  http://tribune.com.pk/story/564367/pti-led-k-p-assembly-presents-budgets-allocates-rs66b-for-education/

  • well the salaries and administrative expenses are added in education and health Budget that makes it 66b and 22billion respectively but if same is done for last year than education budget and health budget was much higher. overall PTI-JI has made significant increases though not as high as claimed by PTI but still good enough good and progressive start. you have to admit that but LUBP wont because its anti Jamaat e Islami. and JI has the finance so just like PTI you also distorted some facts and figures regarding the budget. shame on all liars

  • the lies came from PTI not JI. and you are also lying. though education and health budget was not increased by as much as PTI claimed but still significant increases were made in over all human development budget. and its a very progressive and public oriented budget by PTI-JI. you should have also mentioned reduction in administrative expenses specially 50% reduction in CM and Governor House budget. but you are anti Jamaat e Islami and liars as I said earlier

    • LeJ-TTP Terrorist, agencies get him to know who killed tourist in GB yesterday.
