Srinagar, October 10:

National Conference in a meeting on Saturday expressed serious concern over the imposition of property tax in J&K.

In a meeting of the party leaders presided over by NC General Secretary Ali Mohammad Sagar , and attended among others by Kashmir’s provincial president Nasir Aslam Wani , senior leaders Mubrak Gul and Shamima Firdous , the leaders said that “amidst depressing economic activity and soaring unemployment, the GOI has amended two municipal laws of J&K and given power to the local administration to levy and collect property tax. Far from doling out fiscal help and other supportive measures, the government,” the leaders said “ wants to suck the life and blood of people.”

They said that this will push the people to wall .

Terming the move as “grave injustice”, the leaders said the imposition of the property tax, at a time when the economy is reeling under slowdown, will overburden people, who are struggling to make ends meet.
