Power Companies involved in Sale Tax Scandal of 130 crore, BJP demands CBI inquiry–Vijender Gupta
BJP Delhi Pradesh President Shri Vijender Gupta has accused Sheila government of acting in favour of power companies again and again which are looting the people of Delhi and said that the notice given to the Sheila government of Delhi on the bungling committed by the power companies in sale tax evasion of 130 crore rupees by the Lokayukta of Delhi Shri Manmohan Sareen, confirm the allegations of BJP. He has demanded CBI inquiry into this serious case.
He reveled that some days ago a complaint sent to Lokayukta it was exposed that after privatization of power the three companies evaded sale tax of 130 crore rupees in initial three years and looted public money. He further told that according to policy government concern at that time were entitled to such sale tax exemption only. But the level at which private companies got the benefit shows that Chief Minister Sheila Dikshit deliberately kept mum in this case and did not sent reply to the sale tax tribunal for 11 months. As a result the tribunal gave its judgment in favour of power companies.
Pradesh President Shri Vijender Gupta has also said that in the High Court in this case and when the Court asked about sale tax then Delhi government replied and stated that the power companies should deposit 130 crore rupees in the government treasury. BJP want to know that why the same Sheila government did not give this reply to the sale tax tribunal also ?
