India doesn't need 5 different GST slabs but one tax: Rahul Gandhi

Hardik and I will campaign together to topple BJP in Gujarat Jignesh Mevani

The Congress party, which lampooned the Finance Ministry for taking four months to cut rates of Goods and Services Tax, has now set its sights on pushing for one slab. 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.

Before embarking on his campaign, Mr. Gandhi offered prayers at the renowned Akshardham Temple in Gandhinagar, which also hosted Prime Minister Narendra Modi during its silver jubilee celebrations.

Congress vice president gave three suggestions to them.

He will also visit the famous Ambaji temple in Banaskantha district on Saturday. "If BJP doesn't do it, Congress will", Mr. Gandhi said addressing election meetings in several villages and towns in the north Gujarat region that will go to the polls in the second phase on December 14.
