South Connect: TN Finance Minister Busts PM MODI’S Fuel Tax Arguements With Numbers

Tamil Nadu Finance Minister Palanivel Thiaga Rajan said the Union government’s taxes “continue to be exorbitant” and that “it is neither fair nor feasible for the state government to further reduce taxes.” A statement issued by Rajan late on Wednesday, in response to Prime Minister Narendra Modi criticising states including Tamil Nadu for not reducing taxes on fuel, said the “sole, simple, and fair approach to improve the situation for all, is for the Union government to remove the levy of cesses and surcharges and revert to rates that prevailed in 2014.” This and more in today’s South Connect.
