J&K Congress Wednesday said the BJP-PDP coalition government should come clean on tax being imposed on helicopter services to Vasihno Devi.

"The government should come clean the issue. If the tax has been imposed on this service (Vasihno Devi) only, it should be rolled back," State Congress President G M Mir told Greater Kashmir.

He said there is no doubt that the government needs to generate revenue. "But government should clarify whether the service would be applicable to only Vasihno Devi pilgrims or other services active in J&K," Mir said.

Mir also questioned the Government's move, saying "why service tax was not applied on AmarnathYatra helicopter service."
