Toll taxes is one of the primary source of Revenue generation in Pakistan. Recently the Ring Road Lahore has increased its toll tax from 20 to 35 rupees which has been criticized widely on social media. But here is a misconception, people are castigating Punjab Government while the it is being run by NLC (FWO) which is an Army institution.
The Ring Road Lahore was made in collaboration with Turkish Government and it is also been heard that the taxes are directly received by Turkish Government. People on social media pointed out the contradiction in Government policies which on one hand promises to facilitate public while at the same time sucking their blood.
Some were of the opinion that since people in Pakistan do not pay taxes and only a minority of 1% files their taxes so Government has to extract money through acts just to maintain roads. However, people agreed on the fact that for general masses the recent increase in Toll tax is unbearable.
While some people remained stuck in showing their political loyalties
Speaking about such injustices in social circles indicate that people in Pakistan are politically becoming more conscious and collective voices on such issues should be heard by those in power before it gets too late.
