Whether he loved Mumtaz more than other wives, is irrelevant to the construction of Taj. Taj was constructed at a huge cost which was fleeced from the common man of those times. The poor farmers, mostly, who had to pay lagaan through their noses.
A hindi song written by Sahir Ludhianvi, the famous poet and lyricist touches on the subject somewhat. The lyrics were rejected by Music director Naushad. It was like this:
Ik Shenshah ne lekar daulat ka sahara ... hum garibon ki mohabbat ka udaaya hai mazaak.
(A King has mocked at the love of we the poor people ... by taking support of his wealth).
Mughals are known to have levied up to Sixty Percent taxes on people ... to build tombs for the dead kings and queens and other lavish buildings and gardens.
