In an attempt to woo the traders’ community, Congress president Rahul Gandhi promised to implement rather simpler version of GST by having only one slab of Goods and Services Tax if his party is voted in power.
Currently, it need be mentioned, there are five slabs in the GST.
Gandhi made the announcement as he interacted with the students of Maharani College.
The announcement came when a student asked the congress chief why there was free health care in Singapore though they have one GST slab of seven per cent.
It was then that Rahul Gandhi said that this would better be answered by Prime Minister Narendra Modi.
He also said that products mostly used by weaker sections of the society also needs to be kept out of purview of GST.
Congress chief also attacked the government on foreign black money and said that it was having the list of those who have accounts in Swiss Banks but it is reluctant to table in Parliament.>
