Mangalore Today News Network

Mangaluru, Dec 24,2016  : Senior Congress Leader B Janardhana Poojary  has accused the Congress ruled Mangaluru City Corporation of failing to keep up its promise on  Self-Assessment Property Tax.

poojary 1Speaking to reporters here on December 24,  Saturday, Poojary said  the MCC by hiking the property tax by 15 per cent has betrayed the trust which the people reposed on it. He also recalled a public meeting organised by the party at Nehru Maidan  in the presence of several leaders prior to MCC polls,  wherein the party had pledged not to increase the property   tax  for five years if it came to power. He described the hike in property tax as an unpardonable offence.

  Praising former mayor Mahabala Mare, Poojary said  Maarla had refused to increase the property tax though was asked to do so by the Urban Development Department."  "However, the present Mayor Harinath has  heeded to the directive of the Department but has failed to keep up the promise made to electorate," said Poojary.

Once again training guns on CM Siddaramaiah on the issue, he said the Chief Minister could have asked for steps to recover pending taxes rather than increasing taxes at a time when people are already feeling the heat of demonetization.

The increase in property tax will also lead to increase in rents and will hit hard the public, said Poojary.

Poojary is very transparent in his views which is a knock out to his Party. Now we hardly get such genuine leader who really are concerned about the public welfare
