that PTI team’s ability, capabilities and capacity to undertake “change management” and initiate its party manifesto -pandemic notwithstanding, continues to face headwinds for various reasons, whether supportive or critical in form and substance for “constructive changes.”

We said, fiscal debt management has been the incumbent government’s major focus amid slowing of economy leading to unpredictability in state revenue streams.
