Do not pay toll, `oppose` if asked: MNS chief Raj Thackeray Heh. We can use a leader like him here in Haryana. (Not really)
The instruction from the MNS chief asked party workers and people to “oppose” and “attack” if asked to pay toll tax in Maharashtra."If there is any instance just crush the toll nakas. If there is a traffic jam let it be, let the situation take its own course. Do not not bother just don?t pay toll in any of the toll booths," Raj told PTI.Following the attacks on the toll booth, security has been strengthened across the state.

Right. Congress MLA sits on a dharna and threatens self immolation.Shiv Sena leader ask party followers to break down toll plaza barriers as a matter of protest.I am guessing the argument would be that AAP is running the government so they have to play with different rules.

As I said. He was doing wrong when he was protesting as a common man. He is doing wrong when he is protesting as an elected representative. Congress appears to be in power in Maharashtra. Sanjay Nirupam appears to be a Congress member. He was sitting on a dharna outside Mukesh Ambani house I believe asking for power prices to be slashed. Threatening to burn himself was just the icing on the cake.

Sanjay Nirupam is Congress minister, but Reliance distributes electricity to Mumbai. And Mumbai is ruled by Shivsena :)
About Raj's new diktat, this is expected move, because this toll issue has really grown bigger, and every political party would like to grab opportunity over this issue.
Few weeks back after long agitation by public and few elected leader, state govt had to stop toll collection in city of Kolhapur. Earlier every vehicle had to pay toll to enter Kolhapur, this despite roads were not really in good condition, and no clarity by toll operator over collection details.

Hasn't the court already decided its going to be removed? As soon as they finish agreeing on a fee etc.

Lots has been said about it. But nothing has really happened. At one point of time Hooda said that Haryana government would purchase it and make it free but then he changed his mind. It is such a goldmine that no one wants to lose this sone ke ande dene wali murgi. hmm. latest about it on google news:
The highways authority also informed the court that if all bankers involved in the project were ready to accept the settlement proposal that IDFC submitted in May 2013, it was willing to settle the dispute once and for all. In the proposal, IDFC suggested that the Delhi-Gurgaon expressway could be made toll free if the toll plaza was removed from Gurgaon city limits and shifted to Kherki Dhaula.NHAI officials, on condition of anonymity, said that it would take a minimum of two months for the expressway to become toll free even after IDFC gets all bankers on board and the dispute is settled.“The logistics need to be worked out. For instance will IDFC bear the financial liability after the first toll plaza is removed? NHAI has made it very clear that it won’t bear the cost. Also, once IDFC takes over the project how does it plan to run it? Will it set up a company? The details are not clear,” said an official.
Gurgaon toll plaza relief not before two months - Hindustan TimesI love NHAI for the lack of responsibility they are willing to take for the sole purpose they exist for.
NHAI has made it very clear that it won’t bear the cost.

For lots of people in Thane who commutes to Mumbai regularly have to pay Toll Tax twice despite both are sister cities with just different District status.
