BJP punishing Jammu to appease Kashmir
Everything for Valley
1/21/2017 11:06:54 PM
Early Times Report JAMMU, Jan 21: Revelations made by the state government in the legislature during the past two days are very disappointing.

And, this despite the fact that Jammu pays more revenue to the state exchequer and Kashmir's contribution is almost nil when compared with that of Jammu province. For instance, Kashmir contributed to the state exchequer only about one third of the Excise and Sales Tax collected from Jammu province during the last financial year. Similarly, while Toll Tax collection in Jammu region was to the tune of Rs 627 cr...
