‘No tax should be levied on people living in villages'

Staff Reporter

NEW DELHI: Protesting against the “unjust” policies of the Delhi Government towards people residing in villages, unauthorised colonies, resettlement colonies and jhuggi jhonpri clusters, Delhi Vikas Morcha president Ramvir Singh Bidhuri and Bharatiya Janata Party general secretary Vijay Goel addressed a rally at Jantar Mantar here on Sunday.

Mr. Bidhuri said: “No house tax should be levied on people living in villages, unauthorised and rehabilitation colonies. Until the Government provides basic amenities like schools, hospitals, sewer lines, community centres, parks and clean drinking water, no tax should be levied on these people.”

Mr. Goel said the Delhi Government had failed to regularise the unauthorised colonies where provisional certificates had been issued to residents. It had also prevented the Municipal Corporation of Delhi from spending on development works on these colonies.
