Great Support For Toll Plaza Dharna in Jalandhar And Around

There is great support among the general public and motorists in staging Dharna against the " Highway Robbery " being indulged in at various Toll Plazas in Jalandhar and rest of Punjab.

The loot of the common motorist at the numerous ( and ever increasing ) Toll Plazas is sure to be an election issue in the forthcoming Assembly elections in Punjab. 

A common man pays these levies for maintainence of roads :-

 VAT on the Motor Vehicles at the time of purchase  ( Excise Duty and Sales Tax )
Road Tax 
Registration Tax Road
levy on petrol

Still the Government levies back breaking highway toll taxes for "maintaining roads".
