The Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) on Saturday accused the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP)-ruled municipal firms of allegedly tricking merchants by first elevating completely different taxes and never refunding those that have already paid up regardless of providing a rebate forward of elections.
AAP chief spokesperson Saurabh Bhardwaj mentioned, “On October 25 last year, the BJP-ruled MCDs stated in an order that the increased rates of (commercial) property tax will be reduced till March 31, 2022, but those who have deposited extra tax will not be refunded. The BJP has come up with this new trick to fool people ahead of the MCD elections. And, if they come back to power, then they will again charge 17 times the tax.”
