Referring to a statement by Dr Firdous Ashiq Awan, Special Assistant to PM Imran Khan for Information and the salaries and benefits of the ministers of the ruling party PTI, a user named Masoom wrote, “Young people are defending Khan on social media but dozens Why are ministers taking crores of salaries and benefits?

Pakistan is one of the countries where most people are young. And the negotiation of jobs to be hired is an ongoing process. Imran Khan, the current leader of the ruling Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) party, had promised in his election campaign to give people 10 million new jobs, which made him very popular with the youth. But more recently, the Prime Minister of Pakistan seems to be elaborating on these statements, as he said in a statement that "government activities are a disaster and do not reflect your power.

The pay hike was justified by the fact that the salaries of the heads of other government and state institutions are much higher while the salaries of the custodians of the upper house and lower house are very low. This justification did not convince the social media users. A handle named Mazhar Hussain Butt wrote, "Those who came to the House with votes from the people wasted their day. Keep wasting time on the bill.

A handle named Qadir Khan Sherkhani shared a part of the speech of Senator Usman Kakar of Pashtunkhwa Map and put the hashtag #spni_spni_khabri (Khari Khari Baatin) on it. In this conversation, the senator was referring to the hugely low salaries of Pakistani television hosts and asking why those who are paid between Rs 5 million and Rs 6 million talk about our Rs 1.5 million.

Arshad Waheed Chaudhry, who is associated with television journalism, made the talk of Naseebullah Baazi, one of the motivators of the bill, a part of the social timeline. Senator Naseebullah Baazi had said in his speech that "some senators are opposing for point scoring here but if a secret ballot is held on this bill then all the 104 votes will be in favor".

While social media users, who saw the pay rise as a burden on the country's economy, continued to oppose the move, there were many who offered alternative views. A handle named Usman Ali wrote that "raising or not raising salaries does not make much difference to the national economy. The country's economy is ruined when billions of rupees are laundered through corruption and properties are built outside the country. Businesses are done

When the bill on pay hike was moved in the Senate yesterday, there were 16 votes in favor and 29 against. Dilawar Khan and Yaqub Khan Nasir of PML-N voted in favor of the bill. PK Map, National Party, Jamiat Ulema-e-Islami, ANP and MQM also supported the bill while PPP, PML-N, PTI and Jamaat-e-Islami opposed the bill.
