Sindh government has approved the flood tax

Sindh government has approved the imposition of one time flood tax in the province, Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) Information Secretary Fauzia Wahab said Monday.

Meanwhile, MQM, a coalition partner of PPP led government, has condemned the unilateral decision. Sindh Health Minister Dr Saghir Ahmed and Youth Affairs Minister Faisal Sabzwari said that their party was not taken into confidence.

The Muttahida Qaumi Movement (MQM) had rejected and vehemently criticised the imposition of ‘Flood Surcharge’, saying it would further burden the salaried class while asking the government to impose the new tax on the agricultural income of feudal lords.

A four-member delegation led by MQM’s parliamentary leader in the National Assembly Dr Farooq Sattar conveyed the rejection of the proposed tax to the Prime Minister Yousuf Raza Gilani in a meeting in Islamabad last Thursday.
