Meanwhile, Ansari quotes to the Finance Minister through his social media channel as:
Honorable Minister of finance,
Nepali citizens are no longer in the position of paying tax. Fragrance don’t come out from a dead body. It is an inhuman act to force for donating blood where a body lacks blood.
Ansari also adds as , ” Please accept what so ever price comes by selling our clothes and accept it as tax. Now, public has nothing to provide you more than these clothes. Also, urges for not using the money received in an illegal act.
