STATE TIMES NEWSRajouri: District Youth Congress Rajouri under the leadership of its district president Ibrar Ahmed lambasted UT Administration for imposing property tax in JK.Addressing a press conference at Press Club Rajouri, Ibrar while pointing towards the amendments made in the J&K Municipal Corporation Act and J&K Municipal Act by the GOI whereby it has substituted several sections of the existing laws and authorized the urban local bodies to impose property tax on lands and buildings, termed the move as highly unjustified and atrocious besides amounting to encroachment upon powers of local legislature.“There could be no Justification to effect such kind of amendment at the present juncture when the J&K UT was passing through most critical times and its people facing severe financial crisis.. The traders, small shopkeepers, rehri and Phari wallas, the hoteliers, the dhaba and restaurant owners, the transporters and other self employed people had suffered huge losses during the past few months and were funding it difficult to sustain during the prevalent crisis”, said Ibrar.Cautioning the Govt of serious consequences arising from imposition of Property Tax, Ibrar observed that since all the major commercial activities in J&K like tourism, industries, real estate, agriculture, etc had born the brunt of insurgency, civil unrest and natural disasters in the past many years, the move to levy such tax had evoked only cynicism besides sparking outrage amongst people in general. People are under enormous distress.Sajjad Tariq, a senior congress leader lambasted “The BJP would be defenestrated if it failed to withdraw the obnoxious property tax which was likely to affect the very survival of a vast section of population inhabiting the urban areas of J&K”,Others who were present Abrar Khan, District Gen. Secy. DYC Rajouri and others Youth Congress leaders.
