Muzaffarabad, PoK, JULY 16, 2019:- State-inflicted double whammy of inflation and taxes has further worsened the lives of oppressed residents of Pakistan-occupied-Kashmir. A sharp rise in fuel, food, and transport costs has severely hit the locals and daily lives. The plights got exacerbated by a change in the rate of various taxes. A marginalised region, which Pakistan has occupied for decades has a large number of people reeling under a state of abject poverty and now the state policies that seek to take away even the little they have is poised to prove disastrous. They have accused the establishment of being apathetic to their plights. They say that Prime Minister of Pakistan, who makes tall claims of making this region, prosperous, has actually done nothing for the welfare of the region.
