    Common people of pakistan have been enduring the giant problems of Inflation , unemployment and government corruption for a few years. Pakistanis get ready for another blow! Your government is going to impose three different taxes of Rs.80 billion. These taxes are reformed GST, increase in the percentage of income tax from 2-3% to 10% and a high-amount property tax for urban areas. The most cruel part of these ruthless taxes is that they would be imposed on the middle and lower class only. No tax is going to be imposed on the upper or the elite class. It is time to wake up. How would the already suffering people of pakistan be able to pay these cruel taxes . Why don’t our corrupt rulers impose taxes on the riches ? Why don’t they impose agriculture tax ?. The answer is simple that the elite class is actually the ruling class. I don’t see anything stopping the imposition of these taxes so get ready for the miserable life waiting for you. Pakistan is a poor country for its common people only because the elite class of our country has a life style which is highly luxurious than the rich people of western countries. What is the need of a 90-minister-cabinet. According to Transparency international a single minister’s expenditure is Rs.1 lac per day. Yes , you heard me right, it is rupees One lac per day. So how can one say that pakistan is a poor country. Pakistan is a poor country but for its common people only.
