Report  Web desk : PESHAWAR: Advisor to Prime Minister Amir Muqam slammed the Khyber Pakhtunkhwa government for imposing taxes on poor class despite claiming its budget tax free. He said PTI government presented “tax tree” budget and not “tax free”, adding the KP government imposed taxes on tailors, local vendors and medical stores that would exert direct financial burden on poor people. Addressing a press conference at WAPDA House, he said PTI leader Imran Khan was residing at Nathiyagali rest House on the provincial government expenses from a month while his government in KP was imposed heavy taxes on poor. He questioned, “How could Imran Khan expressed concern over Prime Minister daughter for living with her father when he had made KP House Nathiyagali as his permanent accommodation on public expenses.” Muqam said that the so called claims of opening the government rest houses for public in KP had now been exposed and the dual standard of PTI leadership as well. He said the provincial government was taking Rs 82 billion foreign loans out of a total Rs126 billion development budget despite making tall claim of not taking begging bowl, adding that Rs 10 billion local loans were also taken by the PTI government. “Imran Khan and his party should have to cut their coat according to their cloth,” he remarked. He asserted that PML-N would win get overwhelming mandate by the masses in 2018 general election of 2018 on the basis of party performance. 02
