Manmohan Singh to campaign against GST, Noteban in Gujarat on Tuesday

Manmohan Singh to campaign against GST, Noteban in Gujarat on Tuesday”

Former prime minister Manmohan Singh will address small businessmen on GST and other issues and also address the media tomorrow here to boost the Congress's prospects in the Gujarat elections.

The Congress is holding a meeting for the business community in Ahmedabad on Tuesday which will be addressed by the senior party leader and noted economist. He will focus on demonetisation and GST during a public function and at a press conference. The event will be the former Prime Minister's sole event in Ahmedabad. He had predicted in Parliament that demonetisation will shave off 2 percentage points from India's GDP growth figures. Manmohan Singh had reacted sharply at the decline, blaming the "double-whammy" of demonetisation and GST for the epic fall. Party vice-president Rahul Gandhi is headed to north Gujarat from November 10 to campaign for the party.

"Prime Minister has forgotten that all cash is not black and all black is not bad".

GST Council the apex body for policy decision will be meeting later this week to look into the concerns of various sectors under the new tax regime.

The Congress, led by Mr Gandhi, has underscored the driving effect of the GST and PM Modi's year-old shock ban of 86 per cent of the currency in circulation on impeding economic growth, which slowed to 5.7 per cent in the last quarter, the lowest in three years. Mr Gandhi has said that it has merits as a key reform, but that its hurried and unwieldy roll-out thumped traders with complicated filing systems and unclear, multi-rate rules that are still being tweaked.
