General sale tax has not affected the rich section of our society; it seems to be a special virus designed by our government to hit only the poor. It works like the drone attack and causes targeted operation. It has nothing to do with any luxury item, where generally these taxes are imposed. By adding this tax to everyday items such as food and fruit and vegetables it is wiping off the poor section of the country of the face of the earth.

Why does our government come up with such schemes which hurt the poor and leave the rich to become richer? There is no tax imposed on the rich landowners, no tax on huge factory owners earning in billions, no taxes on large bungalows and mansions owned by the elite? Only the consumption items of the poor have an ever increasing GST! I request to our government to please review the tax policy and made a scheme to relieve the poor.
