Marriyum slams PTI govt over proposed tax amnesty scheme


LAHORE: Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) spokesperson Marriyum Aurangzeb on Wednesday slammed the federal government over the proposed tax amnesty scheme, calling it a “proof” of the government’s “ineptness, incompetence and hypocrisy”.

Marriyum denounced Finance Minister Asad Umar’s stance on the matter, saying, “Those who played politics over amnesty scheme have been granting facilities to the tax evaders.”

“U-turn rulers are giving an open license of evading taxes,” she said, adding that “an incompetent clique of politicians has ruined economy of the country”.

“Economy is being ruined due to arrogance and lies of Imran Khan,” she further said.

She said the PML-N had left the government with the GDP of 5.8, and currently, it has been decreased to around 3.5, and ineffective policies of the ‘incompetent’ government have resulted in an inflation rate of 9.4 percent in just eight months.

“Pakistan’s debts have increased to Rs3,500 billion,” she concluded.
