I am a tax payer, i want my money to be utilized as subsidised education, recovery loans of farmers, cheap healthcare and pollution control. I am not paying for leisure life and travelling fund of ruling party. My tax is not for some 182m statue.

The govt. is aiming for 5 trillion economy- Steps taken in this regard- 1.Ram mandir 2. Selling Air aindia 3. Raising JNU fees People pay taxes for subsidized education, healthcare and not statues and temples

I am a taxpayer, I do not want anyone in my tax money wearing a suit of 10lac to beg him to vote as a fakir. I do not want anyone to make self-promotion by making exercise videos for my tax money and to go abroad to campaign for Trump also.

I m a student of tiss, Mumbai .my course fee is 2,50,000.i have no father and my mother is house wife .. can u pay my fee..how can I get quality education.. Bhai I want jnu ..I want justice

I am a tax payer and education should be free/ affordable to all.

Hello. I'm a Tax payer and I believe that the govt should progressively move towards making education (and health) free for all and not the other way round. I stand with the demands of JNU students.

I am a taxpayer and I support the JNU students' struggle for affordable education. I demand that the central govt should spend tax revenues on providing free education to all rather than on statues, cow ambulances & on advertising the PM's face.
