The Prime Minister stated that the cross-subsidy would be used to strengthen public services such as education and the health sector. He added that the such policies were necessary to reduce the country's reliance on foreign loans."That is what we call economic freedom; that is what we call coming out of the shackles of slavery of borrowing money," he furthered.

The premier further announced the imposition of another tax on those members of society who earn an annual income of more than 150 million rupees, 200 million rupees, 250 million rupees, and 300 million rupees or higher, Express Tribune reported.
