Rahul slams Centre over GST

Rahul slams Centre over GST

New Delhi, July 5 (UNI) Congress MP Rahul Gandhi on Tuesday launched a fresh attack on the Modi government over the Goods and Services Tax (GST), which he has dubbed the "Gabbar Singh Tax".
"GST on Health Insurance: 18 per cent, hospital room 5 per cent and diamonds 1.5 per cent. ‘Gabbar Singh Tax’ is a painful reminder of who the PM cares for," he tweeted.
The statement came days after the Congress asked the government to scrap the GST calling it "defective" and said that only big businesses, CAs and tax lawyers had benefited from the new tax regime.
"A single, low GST rate will reduce compliance costs, prevent government from playing favourites and ease the burden on poor and middle class families," he said.
