Srinagar, Aug 23: PDP President, Mehbooba Mufti, has voiced her concerns regarding the toll taxes levied at Sarore in Jammu, a press release said.

In a recent tweet, she criticised the Government of India (GOI) for what she described as excessive toll charges, which she believes are burdening the people of Jammu.

The tweet, posted today, highlighted the plight of the residents of Jammu who are being subjected to what Mehbooba referred to as "anti-people action" in the form of exorbitant toll taxes. Despite ongoing protests against these toll charges, there has been no apparent response or resolution to address the issue.

Her tweet shed light on the perceived impunity with which the toll tax collection is taking place, suggesting that the toll tax system is thriving due to an alleged unspoken approval from higher authorities. PDP President called upon Nitin Gadkari, Union Minister for Road Transport and Highways, via the tweet, urging him to intervene and investigate the situation.
