They are only bothered about Vote Banks . Non Vote Banks are being taxes to killer levels.
There are :-
1) Central Govt. Taxes
2) State Govt. Taxes
3) Municipal Level Taxes.
All levels have their own set of Vote Bank exemptions.
Govt. , instead of imposing additional taxes on already over taxed Indians , should instead cut Govt. expenditure. Vote Banks subsidies like Diesel etc should be done away with, Such subsidies are cornered only by the Rich. Bureaucracy should be trimmed. Governance should be made Simple , Transparent and Pro People. Revenue guzzling Posts of President , Governors , Sheriffs etc should be abolished. Instead of selling PSU Nav Ratnas land of British Colonial Clubs like Chelmford Club New Delhi and Gymkhana Club New Delhi should be sold and proceeds used to meet the Fiscal Deficit.
no he wont do that.. He needs money to service heavy interest payments , to buy unproductive defence equipment. They have too many populist programmes including periodical schemes such as total exemption from payment of loans to financial institutions power bills etc, making India a high cost governance country. The middle class bears the entire burden of cost of populist schemes designed to benefit only the so called AAm Admi.
