Dr. Noor Fatima (Economist):
Paying taxes is our national duty. Prime Minister Imran Khan constituted a commission to probe unprecedented borrowing of 24000 billion dollars. Such commission was required for confidence building of the tax payers. A country can never serve people unless its people pay taxes. The Prime Minister has already assured the nation that the collected tax will be utilized for their welfare only. It is for the first time in the country’s history when its cabinet members voluntarily decided ten per cent reduction in their salaries. It is also a positive development that the military had voluntarily agreed upon to cut its expenditures due to critical financial situation.
