Shabbar Zaidi says traders’ call not justified: ‘Someone else is behind strike call’

FBR Chairman, Shabbar Zaidi, has said that there is no justification behind the strike of traders, and the FBR will not back out from the condition of getting CNICs on purchase of more than PKR 50,000. He said that the purpose of getting CNIC is documentation of economy. PM Imran Khan will take ultimate decision, but as far as the FBR is concerned, it will not back out from the CNIC condition. While addressing reporters after attending the ceremony of visiting president of World Economic Forum (WEF) the FBR Chairman said that the problems are complex, but there is someone else behind this. He added that PM Imran Khan made efforts to convince businessmen in Karachi to avoid a shutter down strike but all failed. He said that there is no objective to create deadlock.
