Lahore, June 12, 2015 (PPI-OT): The LCCI President Ijaz A. Mumtaz has termed the Punjab budget for year 2015-16 as pro-industry, pro-poor and relief-oriented. The government of Chief Minister Mian Shahbaz Sharif deserves congratulations on presenting a balanced budget, he said in a statement here on Friday.
