GST rollout in India: Rahul Gandhi says Modi govt ‘incompetent and insensitive’

Agencies: Goods and Services Tax (GST), the biggest fiscal reform India has seen since Independence, will kick in on July 1. In an unprecedented move, the Parliament will hold a midnight joint session to mark the historic move. Moreover, members of both houses will be busy during the day as 23 Parliamentary committees will meet to iron out the final shape of GST.

However, the Opposition is playing hardball and will not be part of the midnight joint session of Parliament. In fact, only a representative of Nitish Kumar’s JD(U) is attending the meet from the other side. Finance Minister Arun Jaitley has already asked members of the Congress and other parties to join the historic gathering.

While the Congress has called the event a “publicity gimmick” and “tamasha”, the Trinamool Congress had already announced its decision to boycott. Opposition parties like the Samajwadi Party, Rashtriya Janata Dal and the Left will also stay away.
