Opposition leader in Kerala Assembly  V S Achuthanandan today demanded immediate session of the House to discuss the hike in taxes announced by the state government yesterday.
Talking to newsmen here, Mr Achuthananadhan said the last Cabinet meeting imposed the hike on taxes without the approval  of the Assembly, which is not correct.
He said this was the first time in the state that such high tax of Rs 2010 crore was being imposed over through a government order. It overburdening the people and  anti-constitutional.
