Published On: April 24, 2024 – Congress provided further ammunition to the BJP on the 'wealth redistribution' poll promise, with Indian Overseas Congress Chairman Sam Pitroda making a case for a U.S.-like inheritance tax in India. BJP came down heavily on the Congress, with the Congress finding itself on the back foot, even going as far as distancing itself from Pitroda's statement. PM Modi attacked Congress, saying that the party loots people in life and even after life. Congress has gone into a damage control mode and reiterated that they have no intention of introducing the inheritance tax. On Point decodes if the investment tax row is another self-goal by Congress.
