HYDERABAD: Congress President Rahul Gandhi today slammed the Goods and Services Tax as "Gabbar Singh Tax" and said that one slab GST would be implemented when the "Congress party-Government" comes to power at the Centre.
Speaking at an interactive meeting with women Self-Help Groups, organised by the Telangana Pradesh Congress Committee, he also attacked the NDA government, saying it waived loans of Rs 2.5 lakh crore of the 15 richest businessmen in the country during the past two years ..
"No, (it is) Gabbar Singh Tax. This GST is a way of removing money from the pockets of the poor. This is not GST, this is Gabbar Singh Tax. When the Congress Party government comes (to power), we will give you GST - Goods and Services Tax.
In that, there will be only one tax level. There will not be five different taxes. In that, you will not have to fill different (compliance) forms every month", he responded to a woman who complained about being levied GST.
