BJP whip to LS MPs for GST bill on Monday
New Delhi, Aug 5 (IANS) Signalling that the government may table the amended Goods and Services Tax (GST) Bill in the Lok Sabha on Monday (August 8), the ruling Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) has issued a whip asking its members to be present in the house.
“The party whip has been issued for our MPs to be present in the house on Monday, August 8. The GST bill is likely to be taken up for consideration,” a party source told IANS here.
The Rajya Sabha had on Wednesday unanomously passed the bill with amendments to enable consensus on the measure. The bill, which had previously been passed by the Lok Sabha, will now go back to the lower house, where it is likely to get the nod easily as BJP-led National Democratic Alliance (NDA) has adequate numbers.
