We will not allow BJP to impose Gabbar Singh Tax on India: Rahul

New Delhi, Nov 10 (UNI) Expressing a feeling of vindication over the GST council reducing the GST on several items from 28 per cent to 18 per cent, Congress vice president Rahul Gandhi on Friday said his party would not allow BJP to impose a 'Gabbar Singh Tax' on India.
''We will not allow BJP to impose a Gabbar Singh Tax on India. They cannot break the back of the small and medium businesses, crush the informal sector and destroy millions of jobs,''Rahul said in a tweet.
Senior Congress leader and former Finance Minister P Chidambaram also said the reduction of GST tax on several items had vindicated the stand taken by the Congress.
''Congress is vindicated. I am vindicated. The merit of capping GST at 18 per cent is now recognised'' he said in a series of tweets.
''Congres party's next goal will be to push for one rate: RNR with an RNR plus and an RNR minus.
GST rate is capped at 18 per cent , this Govt would have learnt its lesson belatedly,''he said.
Attributing the decision of the government to bring down the GST rates to the upcoming assembly polls in Gujarat, Mr Chidambaram said, ''Thank you Gujarat. Your elections did what Parliament and common sense could not do.''
