Raj Thackeray, MNS chief, has asked people to avoid paying toll tax unless government clearly explains where all the money from toll tax is going. This statement prompted the MNS activists and workers to wreck several toll booths across Mumbai and Maharashtra.
Raj Thackeray has accused the congress led Maharashtra government on its toll collection policy claiming that there is no transparency in the process. He also further added that he is not against the toll collection but said that the people has right to know where all the money is going and what is the purpose of its use.
He further added that Maharashtra government is earning much through the toll booths. He and all his Maharashtra NavnirmanSamiti Workers would rise against the toll collection and will use force to stop all the toll collections.
Public is being exploited by the toll charges. Government policies with regard to the toll tax collection are yet not being implemented. MNS is also going to write to Chief minister Prithviraj Chavan about the issue he added.
Raj Thackeray also demanded to know why private parties are given contracts for the collection of the toll tax from the toll booths.
