Himanta Sarma's jibe at Congress over tax notice: "Against poor, downtrodden"

Assam's Chief Minister, Himanta Biswa Sarma, launched a scathing attack on the Congress party following the revelation of an income tax notice against it. Sarma accused the Congress of being opposed to welfare initiatives and the interests of the underprivileged due to its alleged failure to pay taxes. He underscored the critical role of tax revenues in funding public welfare programs, insinuating that Congress's non-compliance indicated a disregard for the welfare of the poor and marginalized sections of society. The Congress, in response, received a ₹1823 crore tax notice and countered by asserting that the BJP had also violated income tax regulations, advocating for a demand notice of ₹4600 crore against them.

Senior Congress leader Ajay Maken further accused the BJP of breaching tax laws, while Jairam Ramesh condemned the BJP's actions as "tax terrorism." Despite facing financial pressure, Ramesh affirmed the Congress's resolve to withstand attempts to undermine its financial stability. The exchange highlights the ongoing political tensions between the two major parties in India, with accusations and counter-accusations flying amidst allegations of tax irregularities and partisan motivations.
