Dealers of Ghaziabad city came together and presented a protest march for opposition of the proposed increase in house tax. Mahanagar Udyog Vyapar Mandal was the organizer of this march. The participants gave a huge dharna in front of the gate of municipal office.
Dr HS Saharia was given a written memorandum by these traders. According to this memorandum, the taxation policies should fall into one of the two categories only; either in the residential or in commercial one. However, if the government wants to impose higher taxes, then they should do so in a proper order. It must remain in limits.
The president of the district Vyapar Mandal, Gopi Chand said that government should realize that traders are already going through tough phase of inflation. Higher taxation would make their survival tougher.
The main participants of this rally were Ram Kishor Aggarwal, Sunil Goel, Rajiv Aggarwal, Dhanesh Singhal, Shiv Shankar Rathi, Rajdev Tyagi, Shanti Swarup Sharma, Pawan Sharma and Ashok Chawla.
