CPM to agitate against hike of property tax

CPI (M) city unit Secretary Ch Babu Rao today said the Left Parties would strongly oppose and launch an agitation against the hike in property tax.

Addressing a press conference here, he alleged that the Corporation was preparing to hike the property tax exorbitantly for the second time since 2007.

He said the hike would be an additional burden on the people. The CPM leader said the Corporation had no right to hike taxes as elections to the council were due. He demanded withdrawal of the proposed hike.
