202 Punjab MPAs are declared tax-evaders

ISLAMABAD: As many as 202 lawmakers of the Punjab Assembly declared in sworn statements on their 2008 nomination papers that they paid zero tax, thus admitting that they were tax evaders.
A study of their nomination papers conducted by The News revealed that several prominent figures had not paid a penny in income tax when they contested the last general elections, though they spent millions of rupees on campaigns.
