Fight for Direct Tax Justice for Common Citizens of India

Dear PM, FM and Members of the Parliament of India. It is very painful to note that the emoluments of the President, the Vice President and the Governors has been revised substantially. MPs of the country have been endowed with inflation indexed emoluments, automatically revising every 5 years. What wrong have the common individual tax payers done to be at the receiving ends year after year, may I ask?

Mr FM your budget rhetoric about concern for salaried class is nothing but crocodile tears. It is a big sham. You gave 40,000 SD and took away 34,200. Do you think the move to be of any consequence when 1% increase in cess is accounted for. It's utterly immoral, on your part, to say that you are concerned about the salaried class. The FALSE SOLIDARITY is NOT WELCOME. Why can't the basic exemption be linked to inflation for common people as well.

Mr FM, you spoke about resentment among common people about Parliamentarians deciding their emoluments by themselves. The concern about the resentment turned out hollow when you announced inflation indexed automatically revising emoluments. No more resentments. Period. This is utterly disgraceful and utter disregard to the common individual taxpayer and his contribution to the national building.

Mr. FM, the taxpaying citizens do not mind paying taxes for nation building but when the same is spent as largesse and unreasonable perks & emoluments by law makers unto themselves then it hurts. Why can't the lawmakers lead by example and live a frugal life as is expected from the common citizen?

Fellow taxpaying citizens, let's join and raise our voice against the ill treatment being meted out to common individual taxpayer year after year.
