Why exempt some people from paying toll tax?
It is said that India is a democracy. It is also said that in democracy all are equal. But this is not true in case of Indian democracy. Indian citizens are discriminated against each other through quota, reservation, exemptions, special treatment. Some citizens are called Aam Aadmi. Some are called Khas Aadmi (VIP). Some are even called Khas Khas Aadmi (VVIP).
Some time back, I went to Moradabad in UP. In the way, I had to stop at a toll tax barrier. I was surprised to see a very big board on the side of the barrier on which a list of those VVIPs was printed who were exempt from paying the toll tax. It started from the first citizen of India, the President and included Vice-president, Prime Minister, Governors and many others. Why these people are exempted from paying the toll tax? It is not a big amount for these people. They can very well pay it, but they are exempted.
The only reason for this exemption seem to me is to show that these people are bigger than a aam aadmi. This is against the spirit of democracy which is based on the principle of equality. India is still suffering from slave mentality where its government discriminates between its citizens.
