Landlord gatecrashes Aam Aadmi traders' wing launch party

The Aam Aadmi Party launched its traders’ wing on Saturday ahead of the upcoming Assembly elections in Delhi.

But chaos reigned at the event after a person accused former minister Girish Soni of “illegally” occupying office space.

Tarun Yadav, a resident of Inderpuri, said Soni did not vacate the flat despite reminders. He said the desperate measure to hijack the AAP event was meant to reach out to the media.
Yadav said he had brought the issue to the party’s notice as well.

Offering a public audit of its MLAs in Delhi, AAP chief Arvind Kejriwal on Friday had asked complainants to come forward with evidence of corruption against their legislators.

He was present at the event to flag off the party’s frontal organisation.

Simplified VAT

The former chief minister said his party wants to create a business-friendly atmosphere by restoring simplified Value Added Tax (VAT) procedure, adding that the AAP government had implemented the decision of simplification of the procedure for calculation and payment of VAT by traders.

The party said the key demands of traders in Delhi include raising the ceiling limit of composition scheme for bringing more traders under simplified VAT procedure, exempting small traders from registering with VAT authorities and ending random inspections by VAT inspectors.
