Increase in Salaries of Government Employees
According to sources, salaries of government employees will not be increased this year but I am not agree with it and I think that Government will increase salaries, however increase may be very minor.
Public Suggestions for Budget
As everybody knows that it is the general public who suffers more from any new taxes and/or increase in rate of existing taxes. Inflation also struck the public very badly especially salaried persons and unemployed persons. So, I want to know, that what are the expectations of readers of this article from upcoming federal budget, which things they want to see in this budget and which things they want to change.
