Prime Minister Imran Khan addressed the nation earlier today (Monday), to take people into confidence regarding the financial situation of the country.
According to sources, the prime minister spoke about agenda on tax reforms and measures related to the economy.
The premier said that the country’s loans have surged from Rs6 trillion to Rs30 trillion in the previous government’s tenure.
Pakistan is a country that pays the least tax but gives the most in charity, he said, urging people to show the same initiative and pay their taxes. If we try, we can earn Rs10 trillion in taxes every year, he added.
He encouraged the citizens to avail the amnesty scheme. If we don’t pay tax, our country won’t be able to progress, he warned. We will have to change ourselves if we want to become a developed country, said the PM.
You have till June 30 to declare your assets and bank accounts in other countries or that were previously undeclared. After that, you wont get the chance, he further said.
