Jaitley steered contentious and tricky GST Bill: S M Krishna

Bengaluru, Aug 24 (UNI) Former External Minister and senior BJP leader S M Krishna paid rich tributes to former Union Minister Arun Jaitley, who passed away in Delhi today, terming him as strategist who took forward the tricky GST bill and matters relating to demonetisation with aplomb.
In his tribute to the departed BJP leader, Krishna said, ‘’In the demise of Arjun Jaitley the country has lost a brilliant politician who had exceptional leadership qualities’’.
He said, Jaitley was a leader with finesse, razor sharp articulation, mathematical precision and a master strategist. An affable character, Jaitley had mastered the art of articulating ideological and economic issues.
Krishna said in a statement, ‘’The manner in which Arun Jaitley steered the contentious GST BILL and the matters related to demonetisation is simply exemplary. The nation will remain grateful to him for bringing sanity and soberness in the otherwise cumbersome tax laws.’’
Notwithstanding ideological and political differences, Jaitley had immense capacity to mix and mingle with his opponents with ease and elan. MPs and leaders of all parties could interact with him on friendly terms, Krishna said.
The BJP leader felt that Jaitley’s demise had created a huge void which is difficult to fill in the near future. May his soul rest in peace.
