‘Public pressure’ forced PM to invite Sonia, Manmohan for talks: Rahul Gandhi
New Delhi, Nov 27 (ANI): Congress vice-president Rahul Gandhi on Friday asserted that Prime Minister Narendra Modi has invited the opposition top brass under ‘public pressure’ as it is quite contrary to his regular style of functioning. Talking about the impasse over the Goods and Services Tax (GST) Bill, he added that the Congress was clear on its position and had three differences with the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP). He added that there would be further progress on the landmark reform only after the government fulfils the demands put forth by the Congress. The three demands by Congress over the Bill are that they want to cap the rate of GST at less than 20 percent, scrap a proposed state levy and create an independent mechanism to resolve disputes on revenue sharing between states. Prime Minister Modi has invited Sonia Gandhi and his predecessor Dr. Manmohan Singh for tea today, in a move aimed at reaching out to the opposition to discuss the smooth functioning of the Parliament and bring an end to the impasse over the Goods and Services Tax (GST) Bill.
