Don’t make GST political issue, Govt appeals to parties
New Delhi, Nov 23 (ANI): Union Minister for Parliamentary Affairs M. Venkaiah Naidu on Monday appealed to all parties not to make the goods and services tax (GST) bill a political issue. The GST is the need of the hour. We can fight on other political issues, but the GST has been pending for the past seven years, while five successive finance ministers have made enough amendments and improvements in it as well. After the GST bill is passed our country’s GDP will grow from 1.5 to 2%, he hoped. He said the world market is slowing down, China is little negative and India is the most attractive destination. So, this is a great opportunity for India, and we should take initiative and make the Indian economy more strong so that the interest rates can come down and we can spend more money on welfare, said Naidu. He said he was in touch with opposition parties, and was holding discussions with them, adding that their meaningful suggestions would be taken into consideration.
