In a letter to Finance Minister Matiya Kasaiya, Mousewani stressed that getting from social media will help in dealing with the bad results of gossip and rumors (gossiping) in the country. With this, it will also help in repaying the nation's growing national debt.

It has also been proposed in the new law that on the total transaction of money from mobile, one per cent tax must be paid to the people of the country. On the occasion of the p
