GST needs a structural reform, he added. He also hailed the GST Council's decision to cut tax rates on 178 items of daily use.When questioned about Gandhi's allegation that BJP gave Rs 30,000 crore for the Nano vehicle project in Ahmedabad, which turned out to be failure, Javadekar skirted the question saying "It's (Tata Motors) is a private company how can I answer the question."Javadekar also lambasted Congress over the claims of better work done under their flagship employment guarantee programme MNREGA."Congress does not have right to talk about MNREGA".

"These are our demands". At a rally in Gandhinagar, he said, "demonetisation and GST have left lakhs of young people unemployed". "But we are not satisfied yet".

He said the "shower of changes" to the GST was made possible only because of the Gujarat assembly elections.
