In informing of the plethora of benefits available in the budget, Minister Indar said,
“We are a government that works at a breakneck speed.”
While adding that Government is doing as much as possible within its term, he highlighted that Government has had to overcome a lot of hardships when it returned to office in 2020 during the COVID-19 environment. He noted that the whole country was then at a standstill.
