The state government is preparing to impose an additional tax of 216 crores on the people, the legislators have opposed the tax

Chandigarh: In punjab Captain Amarinder Sarkar has introduced a bill in the Assembly under which people will be charged tax of 216 crores rupees. Aam Aadmi Party MLAs walked out of the assembly on Tuesday opposing the bill.

On this bill, AAP MLA Aman Arora said that in the budget presented by the government earlier, it was said that no new tax will be imposed on the people. But two days later, the government introduced a new taxing bill. Captain Sarkar introduced the Punjab Infrastructure Development and Regulation Amendment Bill 2021 in the Assembly, but cleverly withdrew it.

Then the government secretly brought a bill imposing a new tax. This new tax will be levied on diesel, petrol and all immovable properties, from which people of Punjab will be charged Rs 216 crore as tax. People are already suffering from inflation. Petrol, diesel prices are skyrocketing, this tax will increase the prices of oil.

Arora said that on one hand the Congress is pretending to oppose the rising oil prices and on the other hand the Congress government is making oil prices more expensive by taxing them. The Aam Aadmi Party opposes this bill. If the government does not withdraw the bill, the Aam Aadmi Party will fight against this bill.

Arora also said that diesel and petrol are already selling more expensive than other North Indian states in Punjab. Compared to other North Indian states, petrol in Punjab is being sold at about Rs 4 and diesel at around Rs 3.
