Congress will bring single slab GST: Rahul Gandhi

INDORE: Congress president Rahul Gandhi on Tuesday said the country will have a single tax slab and basic need items will be exempted from the Goods and Services Tax (GST) purview once Congress comes to power.

Talking to representatives from different walks of life including industry associations, advocates and academicians, Rahul said, “We are very clear that GST needs to be changed once Congress comes to power in Delhi with single tax slab and basic need items out of the tax purview.”

Answering on waning business activities, Rahul said, “We did one mistake of suggesting the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) of keeping one slab in GST and phased roll out, not knowing that they will not consider our suggestions and do just opposite.

Blaming BJP for killing SME’s and halting the growth of the country, Rahul said, “A country can grow only when monopolies break and this is what Congress does to aid the growth of the country but BJP supports monopoly to benefit a few large business houses”.

Rahul claimed that non-performing assets (NPA) quickly moved to Rs 15 lakh crore from Rs 2 lakh crore when BJP came to power.

Attacking BJP, the Congress president said that 15-20 large business houses of the country have made a monopoly on the Indian banking system that should ideally open up to small and medium scale business that generates the maximum employment. “The main issue of the country is unemployment and the only group that can resolve this crisis is SME. Our banking system should have orientation for SME so that they get finances and gives employment,” said Rahul.

Taking a dig on the social media campaigning by BJP against Congress, Rahul said Narendra Modi has a special budget social media budget for me.

Referring to the issues of women safety he said, it’s unfortunate that the approach of male’s in our country towards women is wrong and it’s the responsibility of man to give due respect to women.

Responding to Vyapam scam, he said, “Congress will take fair decision and the person involved will be punished without any vindictiveness.”
