KARACHI: Finance Advisor Shaukat Tareen has said that decrease in prices of petroleum products is impossible at the present economic scenario, but government will honour the decision of Supreme Court. Talking to a private television network here on Wednesday, he said the country is facing numerous challenges and a large amount is being spent on military operations in war torn areas.
He said the revenue position does not permit the government to decrease the prices of petroleum products. He said government will seek guidance from the Supreme Court to collect the revenue. Shaukat Tareen urged the need to expand the network of the taxes. NNI
