Punjab govt provided Rs56 billion tax relief despite unusual situation: Buzdar
June 16, 2020
LAHORE (92 News) – Punjab Chief Minister Sardar Usman Buzdar has said the government has provided tax relief to the tune of Rs56 billion despite the unusual situation, adding that this step will help promote business activities. In a statement, he said that economic activities will generate employment and more taxes will be collected. “The opposition adopted non-democratic and non-parliamentary steps by adopting rowdy behaviour during the budget speech. The established parliamentary norms were violated due to their non-serious attitude,” he added. The CM regretted that the opposition has no interest in public welfare and it is engaged in the politics of non-issues. He said that the budget is based on realistic development targets and is not a jugglery of words like the practice of past governments. He stated that realistic data has been used and public welfare is fully focused. “More balanced and relief-oriented budget cannot be presented in the prevailing circumstances,” the CM concluded.
