    Govt is collecting so much money on taxes every quarter, where is the money disappearing. Govt delivers substandard work and development and doesn’t create more business or investment opportunities and infrastructure. This way eventually govt is killing the hen which gives golden eggs by strangulating those few private companies which are struggling hard to stay above the water. As it is GDP is going down and future is heading towards disaster.
