AAP leader Gopal Rai has accused the BJP-ruled MCD of imposing a professional tax and putting a burden on the public. Gopal Rai said that MCD is bringing a new professional tax in Delhi, people like doctors, lawyers and architects will now have to pay new tax. Apart from this, MCD is also preparing to increase house tax in raw colonies, increase property transfer tax and increase electricity tax.
Gopal Rai said that this agenda has been prepared by the MCD. According to which the MCD is going to propose the agenda in the House on Monday. Meanwhile, Aam Aadmi Party councilors will protest against the new tax in the House tomorrow and the Delhi BJP will appeal to the president not to increase the tax.
Attacking the BJP, the Aam Aadmi Party has asked why tax is being increased when the people of Delhi need relief. BJP leaders should tell whether these rupees have fallen to corruption?
Gopal Rai, a minister in the Delhi government, alleged that the BJP-ruled MCD should tell where the money was spent by the government? Gopal Rai has claimed that at present the Delhi government gives Rs 4,667 crore to the corporation. Apart from this, the Government of Delhi has given 3815 crores as loan to MCD.
At the same time, soon after the Aam Aadmi Party’s allegation, Delhi BJP President Adesh Gupta has tweeted that “I have spoken to the Mayor of South Delhi Municipal Corporation and withdraw the corporation proposal to increase the taxes brought by the corporation officials.” “The mayor agrees.”
