Union Finance Minister Arun Jaitley, in his statement shared via a social media site, has rejected the allegation that any particular region of the country (southern states) was ignored while allocating the share in central taxes to the states. Arun Jaitley has reacted to the controversy over the terms of reference (ToR) of the 15th finance commission and the southern states, including Kerala, Tamil Nadu, that have blamed the NDA-led central government of being biased against them. The finance minister has explained that on the basis of some criteria, the state share is allocated on the basis of recommendations of the finance commissions.
