Prime Minister Imran Khan, in his important video message to the nation on Thursday (May 30) urged all Pakistanis to save themselves from any kind of trouble by declaration of their assets till June 30.
“Today I want to speak with you on an important issue facing the country. Out of 220 million Pakistanis, only one per cent are tax filers, which means this one per cent Pakistanis were bearing the burden of the total 220 million,” Khan said. “This is impossible. No state can serve its people if they do not pay tax. Because of the fact that people do not pay tax, neither can we establish hospitals for citizens, nor the schools for children, the infrastructure cannot be fixed and government has to take loans.”
“This is the easiest scheme, which is valid until June 30. This is a chance for you to declare whichever benami properties or bank accounts you have,” the prime minister said. “You won’t get this chance after June 30.” You won’t be worried as to some institution might trouble you, once your assets are declared. This is good for all,” he said further.
“In the end the most important thing, this would also steer the country out of this difficult phase,” he said. “And I guarantee you that the money collected from your taxes would be spent on you and this country,” Khan assured. “I would not let this money to be misappropriated,” he promised.
