Kashmir Economic Alliance (KEA) Saturday lambasted the Government for its decision of empowering to impose Property Tax through the Municipal Corporations, Municipal Councils and Municipal Committees in their respective areas.
KEA Co-Chairman Farooq Dar while addressing a press conference said that it has become a routine for Government to bring amendments in existing laws.
Termed the tax “unjustified”, he said that law is being enforced upon people forcibly.
“This is grave injustice. People are already reeling under the financial crunches due to slowdown of economy and this unnecessary and extra property tax will add more burden on them,” he said.
He also said that instead of such harsh decisions, Government of India that owes more than one lakh crore to people and business sector should release that money.
“We have suffered such a huge loss due to uncertainty, and Covid-19 pandemic lockdown”, he said and added the graph of unemployed has reached to newer heights while people are depressed and stressed, thereby such anti-people steps will further add to their miseries.
