STORY: Workers of India's ruling Congress party on Tuesday (May 17) demonstrated against federal opposition Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP)-led Municipal Corporation of Delhi (MCD) for increasing road toll tax.

 

The MCD is planning a 15 to 30 percent increase in toll tax on commercial vehicles entering Delhi.

 

Opposing the increase, Congress workers protested at various places in Delhi and burnt effigies of BJP members.

 

Speaking to mediapersons, J. P. Aggarwal, chief of Delhi Pradesh Congress Committee (DPCC), the Delhi state unit of the Congress, said any change in toll tax would impact the prices of essential goods, which are being imported in the region from other parts of the country.

 

"The toll tax increased by Bharatiya Janata Party would impact the prices of other commodities. The goods of daily needs will become expensive. Only a common man will feel the heat of it. We are demonstrating against it and will burn effigies of BJP at 140 places," said Aggarwal.

 

Aggarwal compared the toll tax hike with the recent hike in petrol prices and defended the federal government over the latter, saying they were bound to follow international rates.

 

From Sunday (May 15) midnight, the state-owned oil companies raised petrol prices very sharply by 5 rupees (around 11 US cents) per litre, following an increase in international crude oil prices.

 

"Both are different. The price of petrol increases if the fuel price increases in international market and private companies are bound to follow this, but the increase in toll tax could have been stopped but nothing was done by them (BJP leaders)," he said.

 

Aggarwal later slammed the BJP protest of the fuel price rise by blocking roads.

 

"Yesterday's demonstration by BJP failed as they only blocked traffic on roads. But we did nothing against public. We did not block traffic at any place in the city. We let Delhi move continuously," said the Congress leader.

 

On Monday (May 16), hundreds of BJP workers and supporters came out on the streets across the city, shouting slogans and demanding a rollback of petrol prices.
