Since the day the Goods and Services Tax has been levied in India, the entire gamut of opposition parties seem to have rallied against the central government. The main opposition party, the Indian National Congress, have tried their level best to pull down the GST despite the fact that they had also once tried to implement the same though will all flaws.
Today, the entire country follows just one mode of taxation, that is, GST. The various state-formulated taxing schemes have ceased to be and the whole of India follows one uniform pattern of taxation. By implementing GST, India has joined a list of first-world nations who follows the similar uniform taxation pattern.
Yet, the opposition parties are not convinced. After all, they have to oppose everything that the center proposes. With this aim of opposing to GST, Congress President Rahul Gandhi described GST as Gabbar Singh Tax, which gets its nomenclature from the famous fictional dacoit Gabbar Singh of ‘Sholay’.
Although he lacks the definitive mettle that needs to be a politician, Rahul Gandhi did not think twice before laughing over such an important taxing scheme – not just important but revolutionary. Needless to say, he had to be snubbed. And this time, it was Amit Shah doing the needful.
In his maiden speech in Rajya Sabha, the Bharatiya Janta Party President literally ripped his Congress counterpart with his strong words laden with both matter and wit. Here’s presenting you three video snippets from the speech –
