BJP workers protest against DND toll tax

NEW DELHI: The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) workers on Wednesday staged a massive protest at the Delhi-Noida Direct (DND) flyover, demanding that toll tax should be removed from the flyover connecting Delhi and Noida.

According to the reports, around 400 BJP workers gathered at the DND, and blocked the traffic. The protesters demanded that the toll collected for using the road should be removed.  

A DND official told IANS that they have been “incurring heavy losses and have not been able to recover the cost”, and hence, with due permission from the authorities, continue to levy the tax.

It is not the first time that protesters have blocked the DND for such a demand. Earlier, many political parties had demanded the removal of the toll tax.
