    Ishaq Dar is nothing but a failure and seems to be living in the world of dreams? Shame that Pakistan is governed by such shameless and corrupt people and yet the entire nations is quiet.

    A beautiful Time was given to Ishaq Dar for putting Pakistan on development tracks. Whatever is achieved is very much visible, ” Investors” who invested in Property Industry were the only visible investors in Pakistan both Local and Foreign, this Property Industry has been mutilated to the extent after imposing of un-pragmatic Taxation that whole of this industry has collapsed. Economy has seen devastated impacts because of it, its true results are going to come not only in the coming future but also in the elections of 2018. Now with zero sale purchase of immovable property, I don’t know what tax base has been broadened, and what economy has been flourished. This happens when you don’t have capable person sitting on the driving seat, How can Ishaq Dar justify these Highest form of taxes which are taken in multiple levels, this is like meal loaf from the poor.

    Mr. Dar give a national policy for investors to encourage investment, by just saying ” facilitate” does not work for investors. How much have has your family invested in Pakistan to lead the way for other investors. We don’t trust you.
