Frightened due to BJP’s movement Delhi Government withdraws VAT from CNG and textile – Vijender Gupta
BJP Delhi Pradesh President Shri Vijender Gupta has said that it is the result of BJP’s ‘Delhi Bandh’ that Delhi Government had to withdraw VAT from CNG and textile. He further said that the despotic and anti people Chief Minister Sheila Dikshit had announcement 24 hours ago that Delhi Government will not bow down to any one and it will not withdraw VAT from CNG & textile. It is due to the movement of BJP that the anti people, despotic Delhi Government had to bow down and had to withdraw VAT. Shri Gupta said that during the ‘Delhi Bandh’ of BJP, the support of auto-taxi operators union, Bharatiya Mazdoor Sangh and other important labour organizations helped in pressurizing the Government. BJP will continue to fight against the anti people decisions of the Government with the support of the people in future also and the Government will be forced to withdraw its anti people decisions. He has termed the decision to withdraw VAT as the victory of the people.
In its general budget for the year 2012-13, the Government had imposed VAT for the first time on CNG and textile and shown that it is not concerned with the needs of the people. This Government continued to exploit the people. Inspite of the fact that Chief Minister is a women Mrs. Sheila Dikshit did not spare even the women and tried to increase the price of Sarees. Similarly the Government increased prices of many commodities and filled the exchequer, but made the people of Delhi poor.
Shri Gupta told that the price spiral in Delhi is due to the wrong policies and anti people decisions of Delhi Government. Two lakh workers have migrated out of Delhi, because they are unable to cope with the price spiral. The people living in Delhi are maintaining their families with great difficulty. There is great corruption in power-water supply, food grains, education and health services. Government has completely failed. The people of Delhi do not want to see this Government in power. In the next elections, the Congress Government will be dislodged.
