Former Senate chairperson Raza Rabbani said Finance Minister Asad Umar had suddenly fallen sick. Maybe there is a virus in the air, said Rabbani, adding that the mini-budget was supposed to be debated during today’s session, but the finance minister is absent. Rabbani said the debate was useless without the finance minister.
