Srinagar, Feb 26 : Rajeshwer Singh, vice president Youth National Conference Jammu Province , claimed that imposition of property tax in Jammu and Kashmir is nothing more than an assault on the people.
In a statement, he opposed levying taxes when unemployment rate is at its highest.
He claimed that the youth are already suffering from lack of employment, and that this action will aggravate their wounds even more.
He added that taxing people while there is significant inflation is an extremely unjust decision since it will hurt locals’ pockets much more.
He urged the administration not to implement the tax because they are already paying enough due to inflation.
