Act against Khaira, Cong tells Kejriwal 22.6.2018 The Tribune
Tribune News Service New Delhi, June 21 The Congress on Thursday attacked Aam Aadmi Party chief Arvind Kejriwal for not reprimanding the party’s Punjab leader Sukhpal Singh Khaira enough for the latter’s alleged pro-secession remarks. Punjab Congress president Sunil Jakhar said, “Mr Arvind Kejriwal, leader of your own legislative party in Punjab Sukhpal Khaira flagrantly supports secessionist demands and your idea of stringent action is ‘refusing to meet’ him? Please don’t fool Punjab by excusing yourself from accountability.” The Congress has decided to rub Kejriwal’s nose in the Khaira remark with an eye on the Haryana elections. Kejriwal has already announced his decision to contest the next Haryana elections. The Congress feels that it has a good chance of returning to power in Haryana where the political equation has already been complicated by a pre-Lok Sabha election pact between the INLD and BSP. The AAP’s presence will further complicate the situation for the Congress as the AAP tends to eat ...

Turf war over mining trade to blame 22.6.2018 The Tribune
Tribune News Service Chandigarh, June 21 The attack on Ropar MLA Amarjit Singh Sandhoa by Ajwinder Singh Baihara is apparently not a fight to stop the illegal mining operations. Rather it is a turf war to gain supremacy over the entire mining operations in the mineral-rich districts of Ropar and Anandpur Sahib. Sources say the turf war between two politically aligned mining contractors manifested itself in Thursday’s incident. Ajwinder Singh is close to Sahibjit Singh Sandhu, son-in-law of former Punjab Congress chief while Sandhoa allegedly had some business dealings with Kamaljit Singh Dhillon, son of sitting Congress MLA Amrik Singh Dhillon, and his partner former Akali MLA Kuldeep Singh Makkar. Sources say mining operations in the state have always been controlled jointly by contractors affiliated to both the ruling party and the Opposition party. It’s only the percentage share that changes with the change in power, with the ruling party’s contractors getting the major share, they say. After the ...

Abolish all non-GST taxes from cinemas: ASSOCHAM 22.6.2018 DNA: Top News
Abolish all the taxes except Goods and Services Tax (GST) on Cinema, said a study by industry body Associated Chambers of Commerce of India (ASSOCHAM) in a study conducted with PricewaterhouseCoopers (PwC). All cinema tickets above Rs100 are charged 28% GST in addition to local taxes. Tickets below Rs100 are charged 18% GST. It also said that cinema is no longer a luxury, especially in larger cities. "While the GST legislation classifies access to cinema as a luxury and puts it under the highest tax rate of 28 per cent (tickets costing above hundred rupees), but considering the socio-economic developments around the world, the cinema may not really be a luxury, at least in metro cities," noted the ASSOCHAM-PwC joint report titled, 'An overview of the impact of GST on film industry – what, why and how.' Local cinema owners said that they have to pay 'Show Tax' of Rs75 per show and Property Tax which is to the tune of Rs15-50 lakh per annum. Moreover, they have to pay 25% electricity duty and the ...
