Correct GST with 'Genuine Simple Tax', says Rahul Gandhi

Correct GST with 'Genuine Simple Tax', says Rahul Gandhi”

Congress vice president Rahul Gandhi on Friday criticised the GST council meet by saying that they will not allow Bhartiya Janata Party to impose "Gabbar Singh Tax" on India. He has frequently referred to it as "Gabbar Singh Tax", a monicker derived from his comparison of the government looting the poor of their hard-earned money with the help of this tax, much like Bollywood villain Gabbar Singh.

Congress leader P Chidambaram on Friday said a "shower of changes" is expected from the GST Council meeting in Guwahati and the "panic-stricken" Modi government has no option but to change the new tax rates. "They can not break the back of the small and medium businesses, crush the informal sector and destroy millions of jobs", Gandhi tweeted. "They can not break the back of the small and medium businesses, crush the informal sector and destroy millions of jobs", Gandhi tweeted.

"Might" is not always "right". "And that is exactly what is happening in case of GST", he added.

Congress spokesperson Abhishek Manu Singhvi said, "It is the worst example globally of a noble conception how quickly it can be distorted to a nullity, out of arrogance and obstinacy".

"I am sure there will be some populous changes because of Gujarat elections, but a GST Council advising is being held in the middle of the Model Code of Conduct operational in Gujarat".

Talking to reporters here, Congress spokesperson Abhishek Manu Singhvi sought to find "flaws" in the GST, saying it can not be a "one nation, one tax" if 40 per cent to 45 per cent of the goods or services are kept out of its ambit. "It is not a GST if you aggregate petroleum, realty, and alcohol", Singhvi said.

The Gandhi scion took to Twitter account to hit out at the BJP regime over GST.

Gandhi also suggested the government to give the country a "genuine simple tax" and alleged that it should not "waste time" of the country by engaging in "lip service". Earlier today, the all-powerful GST Council pruned the list of 277 goods under the 28 per cent tax bracket to just 50 luxury and de-merit items, bringing 177 products - like chewing gum, chocolates, detergent, granite and marble - under the ambit of the lower 18 per cent tax slab.
