September 19, 2020

ISLAMABAD: Minister for Planning and Development Asad Umar Friday said he came to know through media sources that the PML-N President Shahbaz Sharif paid less tax than him last year. The minister said on Twitter that the sources said the PPP Chairman Bilawal Bhutto Zardari and Co-Chairman Asif Ali Zardari’s combined tax was less than him. “To promote brotherhood I am ready to exchange my assets with these three gentlemen. What else sacrifice I can offer,” Asad Umar said while taking a jibe at the three leaders. Later on he posted another tweet, saying that a friend has told him that the previous news was not entirely true and actually Shahbaz Sharif has paid tax a little less than double of what he (Asad) has paid. “Therefore, the exchange formula will be adjusted to my whole assets for his (Shahbaz’) half assets,” he said.
