Web Desk (Tvm)Updated: Friday Feb 3, 2023

Thiruvananthapuram : It’s tax loot in the name of State’s financial crisis, remarked Opposition Leader VD Satheesan commenting on the Budget. Speaking with reporters at a press conference, Satheesan said it is not right to have imposed cess on petrol and diesel amid rising prices. It’s an scientific levy, he said.

The social security cess has been  imposed without increase to the social security pension. KIIFB has lost its relevance.  KIIFB announcements came included in the Budget, then why KIIFB at all, asked Satheesan.
