I doubt it will happen, right now its just testing the waters.

Senior high court lawyer and former mayor Bikash Bhattacharya maintained that tax waiver on such a ground is not permissible under the KMC Act. "It reminds me of Mohammed-bin-Tughlaq's regime. The KMC can forward its proposal to the state government. The government, if it wants, can introduce this, only after passing a Bill in the West Bengal Assembly," Bhattacharya said.

The KMC decision also runs the risk of being construed as an infringement on the right to property. "If I own a house, put it on rent or sell it, I have the sole right to decide the colour to paint my house. The KMC can't discriminate against use of colours and penalize others who don't use it.

Rapes have been happening since years. Its just that now the media is giving it attention. Hell MP has way more rapes than UP and its a BJP state.

WTF? Is that real? Is that a joke?
Very real. Our learned Health Minister wants to ban "so called Sex education", remove vulgarity(god knows what vulgarity he saw) and wants to put "Values" in Sex education. Everyday im more convinced that UPA, as bad as it was, was still better than these retards.
