Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on Saturday promised to abolish residential house tax if his Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) wins the civic polls in the national capital, drawing criticism from Delhi BJP President Manoj Tiwari.
“We will abolish residential house tax and waive off all arrears of such taxes of all citizens of Delhi if AAP comes to power in Municipal Corporation of Delhi (MCD) elections,” Kejriwal told reporters.
He added that industrial and commercial house tax will remain as earlier.
Elections to the 272 wards in three municipal corporations are scheduled for April 23. The results will be out on April 26.
