This is completely unfair. Salary class comes in the top contributing taxpayers category. This scheme will set a negative example in the community.

They are probably most loyal of all Pakistanis, it’s good their contribution is acknowledged, I wish seperate seats should be reserved for them in Parliament. It will be good for Pakistan.

In dire straits but the gimmicks go on. Our dumb and dummy puppet so called rulers never learn. So cut off from reality whereas mass multitudes languish in poverty.
