Imran is no longer PM as the cabinet rejects the summary: Abbasi | Instant News

ISLAMABAD / LAHORE: Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) Thursday said Imran Khan should know that he is morally no longer prime minister after the federal cabinet rejected his summary on imports of sugar and other goods from India.

Addressing a press conference here with Ahsan Iqbal, Abbasi demanded that the Supreme Court should uncover those behind the kidnapping of voting staff at Daska’s NA-75 by-election in connection with geo-fencing reports from chief officials.

“This is not just a question of the by-election results, but also the kidnapping of polling officers to steal the election,” he said.

Holding the government responsible for the whole situation, Abbasi said it was now binding on the Supreme Court to expose the people behind the attempt to steal the election.

He said the report revealed that the chief officer was detained at the same place after the “kidnapping” from the polling station.

“They were held in the same place for 12 hours after voting time ended to change the number of votes,” he said, adding that those who are now talking about electoral reform are responsible for the situation.

He said the same model was used in the 2018 general election during the RTS [result transmission system] has failed.

He also referred to an incident in which the chief officers were taken in a Rangers vehicle.

“I hope the Supreme Court will try to find out who stole the election,” he said.

Ahsan said the geo-fencing report data, for the first time, proved to be an organized conspiracy.

He said it was not a matter of just 20 polling stations, because the entire election process at 350 polling stations was questioned.

“This is a more serious problem than Panamanian fraud and we hope the Supreme Court will support the Pakistan Election Commission’s decision on re-voting at all polling stations,” he said.

He said accepting re-votes at only 20 polling stations meant giving bailout packages to the hands involved in the attempt to steal the election.

“With whose permission, the district administration, federal agents, and police became part of an organized conspiracy to steal the Daska elections?” He asked.

He said those involved in the lousy game, which also claimed the lives of two political workers, should be put in charge.

Ahsan Iqbal said anyone who tries to rig Azad Jammu and Kashmir’s election will be considered a friend of Indian Prime Minister Modi and follow his story.

Earlier addressing a press conference in Lahore, Ahsan said the united Pakistan Democratic Movement (PDM) party and the Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) had made a bad deal by allying themselves with the ruling party in the Senate elections.

Ahsan said, PDM will immediately send the packaging to the government. He said the PDM’s fight was aimed at getting rid of Imran Khan and putting the country on the right track.

He said the government was taking revenge on the leadership of PML-N by registering fake cases, which was very unfortunate.

He said the government was still looking for a professional finance minister even though his three-year term had passed.

“Imran Khan’s selfishness has destroyed the country,” he said, adding that the country continued to develop during the PML-N era.

“Pakistan doesn’t need an enemy today because Imran Niazi has done quite a lot of damage to the country,” he said, adding that the country had been so damaged that no enemy could not do it even after spending billions of dollars.

Ahsan said people cannot pay their electricity bills because of the government’s bad economic policies while foodstuffs are not affordable to them.

Answering questions about government action on sugar

and the flour mafia, Ahsan called it drama and questioned who had been arrested even after an investigation into billions of rupees embezzlement.

He said Nawaz Sharif used to talk about relations with India while keeping national interests in mind but slogans were being shouted against him and today the ruling government is making all kinds of deals with India.

He asked if the disputed status of Indian-occupied Jammu and Kashmir (IIOJ & K) had returned and who was behind starting trade with India.

He accused whoever did this had endangered the national interest.

“The only way to save the country is by holding fair and transparent elections,” he added.

Ahsan Iqbal said PML-N also has an economic program, economic experience and an economic team and today everyone benefits from the project they have founded.

He said the government could not yet protect the corona vaccine because it was wasted or misused by VIPs.

He said the government’s incompetence could be seen from being unable to manage anything, including the corona, economy, and abroad.

Ahsan said the government had destroyed the China-Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC).

“If there were PML-N in the government, the CPEC portfolio could reach more than Rs100 billion today,” he added.

KTBA rejects restrictions on electronic tax notification services | Instant News

KARACHI: Tax practitioners on Wednesday cracked down on tax authorities for limiting tax notification services to electronic means only, which they claim will only add to the misery of taxpayers.

The Karachi Tax Lawyers Association (KTBA), in a letter to Federal Revenue Council (FBR) chairman Muhammad Javed Ghani, raised this alarm, calling the move “unpleasant and unrealistic”. The tax bar says as per Section 218 of the Income Tax Ordinance, 2001 there are four prescribed methods for servicing notifications.

Through a notification issued on February 22, 2018, FBR has stated that notifications presented via electronic means will be treated as a means of additional services to facilitate taxpayers and cannot be treated as a mode of legal service.

However, through a communication issued on February 3, 2021, FBR withdrew the notification dated February 22, 2018 which stated that the clarification was against various provisions in the 2001 Income Tax Ordinance.

“After the withdrawal of the clarification, all notification service mechanisms and other documents are now limited to only one mode, namely electronic services,” said KTBA. That has made the entire notification service mechanism redundant by completely ignoring the other modes provided for in the law, KTBA said. Section 218 of the Income Tax Ordinance, 2001 provides for various modes in which notification will be treated as appropriate given to an individual or a person. The mode of service mentioned under Section 218 is personal service to that individual or representative of that person, service by registered post or courier service at a registered office or address and where the person does not have such an office or address, to the office or place of business by registered mail. , to the last known address in Pakistan or in the manner prescribed for service of calls under the Civil Procedure Code, 1908.

The tribunal rejected the PTI candidate’s letter to the Senate | Instant News

KARACHI: The electoral court rejected Sindh’s nomination letter for the PTI Senate candidate in the technocrat chair on Monday. The decision of the returning officer (RO) to accept the nomination letter from the PTI leader was opposed by GM Khan and Shahid Ali last week.

The electoral court accepted the petition on Monday and listened to arguments from both parties. In its verdict, the court declared RO’s decision null and void and ruled that Abro could not challenge the Senate poll.

“The petitioners’ objections have been proven true and Saifullah Abro does not meet the requirements of a technocrat,” the order reads. Key party leaders from the three Sindh rural zones have approached Sindh Governor Imran Ismail to show their anger and demand that the party’s top command take back tickets from Federal Ministers Faisal Vawda and Abro.

In the letter, PTI officials from the three regions said they were “very disappointed with the whole process” of selecting PTI candidates for the Senate election. However, Prime Minister Imran Khan rejected the objection after he conducted a review of the Senate ticketing.
