ISLAMABAD, Sept 03 (WNP): Former Chairman of Senate and Secretary General of Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) Syed Nayyar Hussain Bukhari Tuesday said the PPP has decided to raise the matter of doling out Rs228 billion under the presidential ordinance of the Gas Infrastructure Development in the Parliament, as well as the Senate and the provincial assemblies.
He said 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 added.
He said 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.
