Traders protest increase in various taxes

PESHAWAR: The members of various unions of traders on Tuesday demonstrated against the increase in various taxes by the Cantonment Board Peshawar (CBP) and demanded of high ranking officials of the defence ministry and station commander to take notice of the ‘injustices’.

The protesters were holding banners and placards inscribed with slogans against the increase in proper tax, professional tax, water tax, signboard tax, sanitation tax, and described the increase unacceptable for the business community.

Speaking on the occasion, the traders’ leaders Mujeeb-ur-Rahman, Mian Mohammad Akhtar, Shaukatullah and Aftab Ahmed said increase in taxes had forced many traders to shut their businesses.

The traders also criticised the elected representatives for failure to come up to the expectations of voters. They said the CBP’s vice chairman and other councillors were duty-bound to raise voice for resolution of the problems being faced by the people.

Mr Rahman said the elected representatives of the CBP should focus attention on development of roads and controlling corruption in the uplift schemes. He said the traders were paying scores of taxes but, in return, facilities were next to nil.
