Jayant Sinha likens GST launch to a happy Indian wedding

Before the roll-out of the goods and services tax (GST) on 1st July, Union Minister Jayant Sinha tried to allay the fears of any disruption by likening it's launch to a 'happy Indian Wedding'. He called GST: 'the Republic’s instrument of simplicity'. On the contrary, West Bengal CM Mamata Banerjee called GST the central government's 'another epic blunder' after demonetization.

1 जुलाई को वस्तु एंव सेवा कर (जीएसटी) के प्रमोचन से पहले, केंद्रीय मंत्री जयंत सिन्हा ने इसके लॉन्च की एक 'सुखद भारतीय शादी' से समानता की तुलना कर किसी भी विघ्न की आशंका को शांत करने की कोशिश की। उन्होंने GST को 'गणतंत्र का सुविधा तंत्र' बुलाया। इसके विपरीत, पश्चिम बंगाल की मुख्यमंत्री ममता बैनर्जी ने GST को विमुद्रीकरण के बाद केंद्रीय सरकार की 'एक और भव्य भूल' का नाम दिया।
