He also said that the country collects only four thousand billion in taxes annually.
Half of the tax collected which is two thousand billion is wasted paying the installments against the debt.
The country cannot fulfill its needs from the remaining two thousand billion.
Unfortunately Pakistan is among those nations that collects the least amount in taxes.
But Pakistan is among the top four countries that gives in charities and donations.
Pakistanis are very talented and skilled people, with passion and dedication this country can easily collect ten thousand billion in taxes annually.
Taking the nation in confidence PM Imran Khan urged every one to come and take part in the Asset Declaration Schem.
He also said we need to bring change within ourselves. If we do not pay the taxes we cannot raise this country.
Quoting the Holy Quran he also said,
Allah has said in the Holy Quran that I cannot change any nation unless it wants to change itself.
PM Imran Khan urged all Pakistanis to come forward and declare all assets including benami (unnamed) accounts, benami (unnamed) assets within the country as well as abroad. The public should benefit from the asset declaration/amnesty scheme.
