Pakistan experiencing various economy issues
HYDERABAD: Adviser to Sindh Chief Minister on Information Sharmila Farooqui has said that the country is experiencing various economy issues due to inflation, deficit budget and huge devastation caused by current flash flood.
She said that bringing Reform General Sales Tax (RGST) and expansion in tax net is the only solution to bring out the country from economic crises and move it to the right track of development.
The Advisor said this while addressing a gathering and later talking to a group of newsmen of Thatta Press Club at Village Lakha Dino Jat near Jati, District Thatta the other day where she arrived to distribute 4000 blankets among the flood affected people. About price hike, Sharmila Farooqui said, "we realize that prices of kitchen items have been increased but when we talk about the imposition of RGST, expansion of tax net and do the documentation of Pakistan economy, the opponents are making uproar and creating hurdles only to serve their political motives". She said it is not easy for any democratic political party to take unpopular decisions but for the economic viability and stability of the country, the present PPP government is intending to bring economic reforms in the country. About rehabilitation works, Sharmila Farooqui said that it is merely a perception that nothing is being done for the rehabilitation of flood victims. She said that rehabilitation works have been started on the ground adding that distribution of seed and fertilizer with free of cost has been started and more than Rs.10 billion have been disbursed among the flood affected till yet. -App
