भाजपा का डर और बौखलाहट साफ है,
जनता भाजपा को सबक सिखाने के लिए तैयार है!

Pushpraj Jain appealed to the government for tax exemption
On Thursday, December 30, Pumpi Jain appealed to the government to tax the traders. In an interview given to Aaj Tak, he had said,
“When the business progresses, the country will move forward…the government should create a business environment for the businessmen so that the country benefits. This is a difficult time.
In such a situation, the government should make such policies to enjoy doing business. Because the business will prosper, then the country will move forward…the government should consider giving tax exemption to the perfume industry.”
