GUJRAT: Central leader of Pakistan Muslim League-Q Chaudhry Pervez Elahi has said that voice will be raised at every level against imposition of Value Added Tax (VAT), terming it an unjustified act and a cruelty against traders.
Addressing a convention of businessmen here on Sunday, Elahi said Shahbaz Sharif has joined hands with Pakistan People’s Party and is forcing traders to close their shops. “While Nawaz Sharif is issuing threats of protest,” he complained.
He said this is how the two brothers are making fool out of the poor people.
Pervez Elahi said the farmers are not getting a fair price for Wheat while the administrators of Punjab are busy doing favours to their cronies after presenting gifts of price hike and unemployment to the people.
