CUT IN EX­CISE DUTY

Hindustan Times (Chandigarh) - - REGION HINDUSTANTIMES -

The govern­ment’s re­cent de­ci­sion of re­duc­ing ex­cise duty on petrol and diesel is good but it seems mo­ti­vated by elec­tions in Gu­jarat and Hi­machal Pradesh. If this is not true, why is the Cen­tre not telling the chief min­is­ters of Bjp-ruled states such as Haryana, Ra­jasthan, Ma­ha­rash­tra, Mad­hya Pradesh, Ch­hat­tis­garh, Goa, Ut­tarak­hand, Ut­tar Pradesh and As­sam to re­duce taxes on fuel. ‘Modi­nomics’ also seems in­ef­fec­tive as he has been un­able to teach his party’s chief min­is­ters how not to de­pend heav­ily on taxes from pe­tro­leum prod­ucts.
