Samajwadi Party protests over service tax hike

Kanpur, Feb 28 (ANI): Samajwadi Party (SP) on Saturday (February 28) protested in Kanpur, as Finance minister Arun Jaitley enhanced service tax without providing any direct relief to middle class. On Saturday, Jaitley announced a budget aimed at high growth, saying the pace of cutting the fiscal deficit would slow as he sought to boost investment and ensured that ordinary people benefit. The SP, which governs in Uttar Pradesh, organised a mock death procession of Prime Minister Narendra Modi to express its ire. The budget was a test of the nationalist premier's willingness to reform the economy with a bloated public sector and weak private investment. Feb 28, 2015
