The WHT ex­pert

Enterprise - - Letter - Muham­mad Sar­war Mir, Gu­jrat.

The Fi­nance Min­is­ter Ishaq Dar seems to be to­tally obliv­i­ous the needs of the com­mon peo­ple and how they are barely making ends meet but is fully mind­ful of the needs of the IMF and the World Bank. He is fleec­ing the peo­ple of this coun­try while ap­peas­ing the donors. We were taught to ‘cut your coat ac­cord­ing to your cloth.’ It ap­pears our fi­nance min­is­ter has been fol­low­ing this in a re­verse fash­ion. In­stead of cut­ting gov­ern­ment ex­penses to man­age the bud­get deficit, he keeps mul­ti­ply­ing in­di­rect taxes to unimag­in­able lim­its. Why on earth would a fi­nance ex­pert levy with­hold­ing tax on bank trans­ac­tions?
