PPP to raise the matter of doling out Rs. 228 billion
Islamabad, 3 September 2019: Former Chairman Senate and Secretary General Pakistan Peoples Party Syed Nayyar Hussain Bukhari said that the PPP has decided to raise the matter of doling out Rs. 228 billion under the presidential ordinance of the Gas Infrastructure Development in the Parliament, as well as the Senate and the provincial assemblies. Syed Nayyar Bukhari said that the doling out of such a large amount from taxes is concerning. Big institutions have been subsidized while the poor people are being crushed under this burden. He said that the nation wants to know as to why the PTI government is subsidizing big institutions instead of gas, electricity and daily items in order to give the people some relief. He concluded by saying that this government sympathizes with big companies due to its connections to them, instead of the poor people who are suffocating.
