Suresh Angadi member of parliament Belgaum has written a letter to the CEO Cantonment board asking under what act this toll is being imposed.
We quote from the letter
“Adverting to above, its been observed that a process to collect the toll, from various Commercial vehicles, moving in the domain of the Belgaum Cantonment limits, is being undertaken by the Cantonment Board authorities , at nearly seven points of the area, since few days. This process is causing undue hindrance to the poor operator of the Goods vehicles of my Parliamentary Constituency.
In this regard may I know as to under
1) What prevailing Act this process of collecting toll is undertaken.
2)Is the similar process of collecting the Toll is in vogue in the Cantonment limits of other states in the Country being followed.
3) Members of Parliament viz: Sri Prabhakar Kore Ji.Hin MP,( Rajya Sabha), Sri Shanappa. Hon’ MP( Rajya Sabha) Ramesh katti Hon’MP (Lok Sabha) and myself represent the Belgaum District.
But the matter isn’t brought to the notice, before the imposition process of the tax. Can we not call it a dictatorship attitude of the Cantt authorities.
In this regard I call for supply of necessary information as above and, immediate stoppage of the act of collecting the toll till the matter stands resolved in the meeting of all the concerned Member of Parliament, is summoned from your end in the Public interest.”
