Over 400 billion rupees of taxes have been imposed on the people of Pakistan: Bilawal Bhutto Zardari

Karachi, June 13, 2021 (PPI-OT):Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) Chairman Bilawal Bhutto Zardari termed the budget as anti-people and cruel. “Over 400 billion rupees of taxes have been imposed on the people of Pakistan”, he said. In a statement issued from Media Cell Bilawal House, Chairman Bilawal Bhutto Zardari said that Imran Khan’s government had taxed every household item, utility, and service used by the people of Pakistan.

“Taxing every phone call, SMS, and internet in the budget and then walking it back after there is backlash the next day is proof that the government has no plan, and that it continues to muddle forward at the cost of the well-being of the people of Pakistan,” said Chairman PPP.

“The Government is also afraid of the public reaction against the heavy taxes imposed on them.” Chairman Bilawal Bhutto Zardari rejected the budget, deeming it blatant theft from the public in the name of taxes, and warned that he would continue to expose the anti-people economic measures of Imran Khan.
