New Delhi, September 6
Congress chief Rahul Gandhi at present stated the GST was an assault on the poor and the marginalised and urged individuals to come back collectively and struggle the “flawed regime”.
“The GST is not a tax system, it is an attack on the 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 stated in a Twitter video terming the GST second main assault on the unorganised economic system after demonetisation.
He stated the GST was UPA’s thought and was conceived as one, minimal, normal and easy tax. “NDA’s GST is completely different. Four different tax slabs, up to 28 per cent, are complicated and difficult to understand. Small and medium businesses cannot pay this tax. Big companies can easily pay it by putting some accountants to do the job,” he added.
“Today, the government is unable to provide GST compensation money to states,” he stated. “The current GST is an absolute failure. Not only is it unsuccessful, it is an attack on small and medium businesses,” he added. — TNS
