The Income Tax department has served notice to JD-U's Delhi office seeking TDS details of "big" expenses incurred on Adhikar rally held on November 4 at Patna's Gandhi Maidan.
Over 14,000 vehicles, including 9,000 buses, were used to transport people from across the state to take part in the rally, JD-U's biggest since 2000. Over 2.5 lakh people took part in the rally, called to demand special category status for Bihar from the Centre.
The department sent the notice to JD-U on December 19, seeking TDS details of rally expenses. The I-T department wanted minute details of payments made to contractors, transporters, catering service providers.
As the state capital was plastered with banners and hoarding in run-up to the rally, details had been also sought on publicity expenses of Adhikar rally. Besides over-the-top publicity, the party had also put up a huge stage for over 150 people.
JD-U state chief Basistha Narayan Singh, however, told The Sunday Express : "We cannot call it a notice as such. It is a routine exercise after every big event held by a political party. In any case, we file I-T returns every year. I-T department people might well have sought some queries, which will be duly answered with facts and figures."
