Federal Minister for Finance Dr Abdul Hafeez Shaikh on Friday urged the parliamentarians and all other well-off people to lead by example and pay taxes, besides encouraging others to do the same. If we have to take the nation towards self-reliance then it is our national duty to pay taxes, the federal minister said while winding up the budget debate in the lower house of the parliament here on Friday. He said that the biggest responsibility lies with the members of this house to pay taxes and persuade others to do the same. The federal minister said that all those who are making big incomes should pay taxes to lead the country towards self-reliance, progress and prosperity.
