Kathmandu, June 3
The main opposition leader and former prime minister Sher Bahadur Deuba has called businesspersons across the country to politely defy the deadline imposed by the government to pay various taxes by June 7.
Whereas the government had extended the tax payment deadline twice in the past owing to the lockdown, officials have now said they cannot extend it again. However, the business community has protested the stance saying they have not been able to do business due to the lockdown.
In this context, the Nepali Congress president said the government showed its insensitiveness by imposing the deadline. He said the government, instead, should have announced some relief packages for the entrepreneurs. He also criticised the government for its failure to introduce a plan to gradually reopen the businesses and industries.
“In this situation, hence, the citizens do not have any alternative to politely defying the order,” he said.
