LAHORE - PML-Q President Chaudhry Shujaat Husain has proposed that the government should set a deadline for all leaders to bring back to Pakistan all their money lying abroad, and those failing to do so should be disqualified for good for any public office. In an interview with the Sunday Plus magazine of TheNation, he said even the relatives of such people should be disallowed to contest any election. Answering a question, he said Pakistan would not have to beg for foreign assistance if all parliamentarians paid their tax and brought back their money. If the parliamentarians pay tax, the treasury will not get much money, but such an initiative will certainly deprive the tax dodgers of any justification not to pay. Tax payers want their money used properly. But when they see their money being misused, they feel discouraged and stop paying, he said. The PML-Q president said parliamentarians should be a role model for others in all respects. But it was regrettable that some people showed as their tax even what they paid in excise or custom duty or sales tax, he said without naming anyone but leaving no doubt that he was referring to the PML-N bosses. He said payment of personal income tax was more important for political leaders. He claimed that he paid an amount of Rs 788,212 in income tax this year. He said other politicians should also let the nation know how much they paid to the exchequer. Answering a question about Gen Pervez Musharraf, he said he had advised the former president not to launch his own party because politics was not his cup of tea. However, he said, the general went ahead according to his own plan and stood exposed. He said no important leader had joined his party. Replying to a question about the law and order situation in the country, Chaudhry Shujaat said: The only way to set it right is that the provincial governments should stop victimizing their political opponents and focus their energies and resources on law and order. Questioned about the PML-N leaders allegations that the Chaudhrys looted the Bank of Punjab during their tenure, he said: Nothing against us has been proved so far. In fact, not even a baseless case has been registered against us on this account. Let them register a case against us and then everything will get clearer.
