Congress chief Rahul Gandhi on Sunday mentioned the Goods and Services Tax regime was an assault on the poor and the marginalised. He has appealed to the folks to come back collectively and struggle the “flawed regime”.

“GST is not a tax system. It is an attack on India’s poor. It is an attack on small shopkeepers, small and medium businesses, farmers and labourers. We have to recognise this attack and stand against it together,” he mentioned in a Twitter video at this time terming the GST a second main assault on the unorganised financial system after demonetisation.

Rahul mentioned the GST was UPA’s thought conceived as one tax, minimal tax, customary and easy tax.

“NDA’s GST is completely different. Four different tax slabs, up to 28 per cent, complicated and difficult to understand. Small and medium businesses cannot pay this tax. The big companies can easily pay it by putting 5-10-15 accountants to do the job,” mentioned the previous Congress chief alleging that 4 slabs have been there as a result of the federal government wished those that have the means to have the ability to simply change the GST, and those that don’t have means, can not do something about GST.

“Who has the means? India’s biggest 15 to 20 industrialists. So, whatever tax law they want to change can easily be done in this GST regime. And what is the result of NDA’s GST? Today, the government of India is unable to provide the GST compensation money to the states,” Gandhi famous including that states, in flip, couldn’t pay cash to workers and academics.

He mentioned the present GST was an absolute failure.

“Not only is it unsuccessful but it is also an attack on the poor and on the small and medium businesses,” the Congress chief mentioned.
