Luxury 2800cc car imported for KPK Minister Shaukat Yousafzai

The new fiscal budget of 2019-20 presented by the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf implied Federal Board of Revenue (FBR) to issue a notification for duties and taxes on 569 different luxury cars/imported items. Anyone who becomes a consumer of these particular goods will have to pay taxes and duties which may range from 0% to 90%. Recently, KPK government just started importing such cars for their ministers.

The first car that was imported was 2800 CC Fortuner for Shaukat Ali Yousafzai is worth 8 million. It is noteworthy that the minister Shaukat Ali Yousafzai is only allowed to own 1800cc car as per the book but his keen will to have the fortuner seems to have convinced KPK Government already. Prime Minister Imran Khan had his say about cutting down government expenses, loud and clear but the recent import of 2800cc went crucially against his austerity drive. PM Imran Khan even initiated the auction for excess luxury and vehicles which were to be used by Govt. officials. However it has become upsetting to see their practical implementation disregarding their quotation, requiring civilians to pay heavy duties and up to 90% while bestowing privileges to Ministers.
