“Indian fake media busy spinning on our internal def budgeting choice.Don’t forget,we were the same forces with same budget on 27 Feb 19. We have the capability & capacity to respond. Remember, it’s not budgeting, it’s resolve of force & the nation firmly standing behind its forces,” he tweeted.

Pakistan Army announced that it had made a voluntary cut to its defence budget keeping in mind the fragile state of the economy.

The armed forces’ move was appreciated by Prime Minister Imran Khan. The prime minister said that his government would use the money for development in the merged tribal area and Balochistan.
