Imposing a 17% sales tax on dairy products equivalent to killing our children: Bilawal Bhutto

Islamabad: Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) Chairman Bilawal Bhutto Zardari called out Prime Minister Imran Khan for attempting to hide the facts of the “poor enemy budget” by silencing the voice of the opposition.

He asserted that no matter what tactics the PTI government stooped to, PPP will reveal the truth regarding the Budget 2021-2022 to the people.

In a statement, the Chairman Pakistan Peoples Party Bilawal Bhutto Zardari declared that using abusive language and hurling insults will not save Imran Khan from the public’s wrath. “Imran Khan set the minimum wage at Rs 20,000 and then imposed a tax of Rs 700 billion. What does this say about the country’s development?” questioned Chairman Bilawal Bhutto Zardari. 

Revealing the true face of Imran Khan’s “Tabdeeli,” Chairman PPP stated, “In one year, there has been a 17% reduction in the income of the common man and a 25% rise in the prices of food utilities. It’s absolutely disgraceful that in a country where one in three children suffer from malnutrition, the incompetent PM has imposed a 17% sales tax on milk and allied products,” he said.

Chairman PPP further stated that imposing a 17% sales tax on dairy products when Pakistan’s poverty rate is 40% is equivalent to killing our children. “This is the price the people of Pakistan have to pay for Imran Khan’s ‘change,'” he pronounced.

Chairman Bilawal Bhutto Zardari also condemned the increase in flour, oil, and electricity prices and said that Prime Minister has brought a tsunami of inflation on the nation.
