JAMMU: Nimrandeep Singh Bhullar , General Secretary of J&K Pradesh Youth Congress strongly opposed the imposition of property tax in Jammu and Kashmir terming it arbitrary and dictatorial in nature. In a statement issued today, Singh said that Jammu and Kashmir is already reeling under a severe economic depression and levying property tax amid such a scenario is a deliberate attempt to ‘bully its residents.Singh asserted that almost every sphere of public life has been hit hard in J&K during the last three decades of conflict. Now last year’s unprecedented political developments coupled with the current COVID pandemic have crumbled the economic conditions. “I don’t see a proper application of mind behind this arbitrary taxation decision which is being thrust upon the people of J&K,” he opined. Singh emphasized that instead of addressing the economic slowdown, soaring unemployment rate and the lack of avenues for a dignified livelihood for the people of J&K, it is highly unfortunate that the Union Government seems adding insult to the injury by frequently coming up with such orders. “Lakhs of people have lost their jobs since August last year; small as well as big businesses have crumbled, and industrial sector is shut and so are the agricultural and horticultural sectors in J&K,” Singh said, adding that the new taxes will bankrupt the population.He said that the Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s Government was responsible for failed economic policies that had led to farmers’ suicides. The PYC State General Secretary termed the imposition of property tax is anti-people and a grave injustice and demanded its immediate rollback by the Union Government.
