The Humqadm Walkathon aimed to raise awareness about illegal tobacco sales and its impact on Pakistan. The Walkathon was held from Bus Chowk to Express Chowk and participants were made aware of how illicit cigarette manufacturers evade taxes and duties which cost our national exchequer a loss of Rs.70+ BLN each year. The participants urged the government to take strong action against those involved in evading taxes.
Multiple Cause Champions and Cause Supporters like Abrar Ul Haq, Nadeem Jaffri, Faakhir Mehmood, Chairman Standing Committee on Information & Broadcasting Senator Faisal Javed Khan and Member National Assembly & Federal Parliamentary Secretary Wajiha Qamar attended the event to show their support for a Behtr Pakistan. Media and civil society, along with the general public also participated in the walk against blatant minimum price and tax law violations by the illicit tobacco sector. All the participants actively voiced their concerns over the need to plug this huge tax evasion.
