Jharkhand govt should reduce share of VAT on petrol, diesel: BJP Jamshedpur

Mail News Service

Jamshedpur, Nov 6:  “After the Modi government at the Center gave a big relief to the public by reducing VAT from petrol and diesel, the Jharkhand government should take similar initiative to cut its share of VAT on petrol and diesel,” demanded the Jamshedpur Mahanagar BJP in a memorandum addressed to Chief Minister Hemant Soren that was handed to the East Singhbhum Deputy Commissioner on Saturday. The memorandum demanding an early response from the Jharkhand government was handed by a Mahanagar delegation led by vice president Sudhanshu Ojha.

The delegation sent a memorandum to the District Deputy Commissioner through email on behalf of the BJP Mahanagar committee.

BJP state secretary Rita Mishra, who was part of the delegation, said that the central government had provided a ‘huge relief’ to the people by cutting excise tax by Rs 5 per liter on petrol and Rs 10 per liter on diesel. After this, 13 states and union territories had also cut VAT on their part, but the Hemant government of Jharkhand continued to remain silent on this issue.

She appreciated the Narendra Modi government at the Center for reducing the excise duty on diesel-petrol and said that it had brought a lot of relief to the common man and traders. “Now, the Hemant Soren government should take a quick decision in the direction of providing relief to the state’s citizens by reducing its share of VAT. If the Jharkhand government does not take a quick decision on this, then the BJP will decide the roadmap for a phased agitation,” she said.

At the same time, District General Secretary Anil Modi, while stating the decision of the Central Government in public interest, said that the states which constantly wanted relief on fuel prices from the Center, were themselves backing out from taking a decision to reduce VAT in their states. “It is a sorry reflection of how much concern these government people have for the pangs of their citizens,” Modi observed.

 BJP State secretary Rita Mishra, District Vice President Sudhanshu Ojha, District General Secretary Anil Modi, secretary Neelu Machhua, Jitendra Rai, Manjit Singh, Treasurer Rajiv Singh, Social Media In-charge Binod Kumar Singh, IT Cell In-charge Kaustav Roy, Chanchal Chakraborty, Scheduled Tribal Morcha District President Binanand Sirka, Vijay Soy, Mohammad Fayez, Meraj Ahmed and other workers were present.
