    PTI recommends tax on goods under Af-Pak Transit Trade - thenews.com.pk


    Talking to Geo News here Monday, PTI leader Shaukat Yousufzai said the proposal was put forward in order to boost the income of provincial government.



    :cheesy:
    Yousufzai said tax would not only improve revenue of the provincial government but also help halting the smuggling.



    Meanwhile, President Khyber Pakhtunkhwa Chamber of Commerce Yousuf Sarwar has welcomed the proposal and said that this would improve condition of Peshawar-Torkham road besides economic condition of the province.

    This is just a sophisticated way of saying there is a warlord sitting on a trade-route and he demands his share of the pie or he won't let the goods pass.

    Noting wrong with that, except that such provincial requirements should be worked out before the agreement is signed.

    Actually, a smart move if you are a Pakistani, but then these borders are lawless and ungoverned. Peshawar and Kabul are smugglers paradise.

    well the non pashtuns in afghanistan are now demanding the khorasan to be made out of the rest of the pashtunistan region..

    Khorasan does has underground support from the whole central asia and ofcourse iran.

    If khorasan is made.even iran will open the route for the khorasan if there are no pashtuns in khorasan country
