Why no all-party meet on GST, asks Yechury
New Delhi, July 28 (IANS) Communist Party of India-Marxist (CPI-M) General Secretary Sitaram Yechury on Thursday reiterated that the BJP-led central government was shying away from convening an all-party meeting on the GST Bill.
“Why is government not calling an all-party meeting on the Goods and Services Tax (GST) Bill,” Yechury said during a press conference at the Parliament House here.
He said that calling an all-party meeting on contentious bills has been a tradition which the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP)-led Union government was deviating from.
Yechury asked, “What are the real intention of this government vis-a-vis the GST Bill?”
