New Delhi, May 16 (PTI)
Delhi Finance Minister Manish Sisodia along with his counterparts from Kerala, West Bengal, Andhra Pradesh, Punjab and Puducherry, will meet President Ram Nath Kovind tomorrow over "unfair" terms of reference of the 15th Finance Commission.

Since the AAP government has come to power, Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal and his deputy Manish Sisodia have been accusing the BJP-led Centre of not giving Delhi's "due share" in the central taxes revenue.

"Finance ministers of Delhi, Kerala, West Bengal, Andhra, Punjab & CM Puducherry to meet Hon'ble President of India tomorrow evening on unfair Terms of Reference of 15th Finance Commission (sic)," Sisodia tweeted.

In April this year, Kejriwal had said that the AAP government would move court for its "due share" in the central taxes revenue and then split the funds it gets with cash-strapped municipal corporations.

He had said that Delhi residents pay Rs 1.5 lakh crore income tax which is the "highest" among other states in the country, but when it comes to fund sharing, Delhi does not get anything.
