Bill on GST introduced in Rajya Sabha amid ruckus

New Delhi, Aug 11 (IANS) Finance Minister Arun Jaitley on Tuesday introduced a constitutional amendment bill to enable implementation of the goods and services tax in the country in the Rajya Sabha amid a ruckus on Tuesday.

The bill was introduced in the house after a report by a select committee of the Rajya Sabha.

As Congress members created a ruckus and trooped near the chairman’s podium, Jaitley said the protests were aimed at stalling the economic growth of the country.

“The real purpose is that they want to stop economic progress… They don’t want Indian economy to grow and that is why they are looking for one pretext or other to make sure that the GST legislation which will give a boost to India’s economy is not passed,” an angry finance minister said.

“If the Congress party wants the economy of the country to slow down when every political party is in support of it, they must candidly say so,” he added.
