Congress on Monday demanded that the government make major changes to the Goods and Services Tax bill, warning that the proposed tax reform could be the next victim of parliamentary blockade.
The meeting of Congress chief ministers, chaired by party president Sonia Gandhi, passed a resolution noting that BJP had stalled the GST bill brought by the UPA in 2011. It stated, "The present Constitution amendment bill to allow for GST has several shortcomings that need to be addressed before it finally becomes law."
The bill was referred to the select committee of the Rajya Sabha following vociferous opposition from the Congress-led bloc in the budget session. The Centre expects it would be up for passage in the monsoon session.
