BJP blasts LDF, UDF in Kerala over anti-GST stand

Covai Post Network

Kochi: The BJP has come out against the CPM-led LDF and the Congress-led UDF for underestimating Goods and Service Tax (GST) which has been well-accepted in other States.

BJP Kerala chief Kummanam Rajasekharan was highly critical of Kerala Finance Minister Thomas Isaac embarking on a campaign to create confusion among people. He said this in his address to party workers who took out a march to Isaac’s house in Thiruvananthapuram seeking removal of anomalies in the implementation of GST.

It is ironical that Isaac who had once said that Kerala would be one of the beneficiaries of GST was now taking a different stand. Isaac had said revenue income would double to 20 per cent.

If the Centre introduced a strong law, it was for the government to show the political will to implement it for the benefit of the common man, Kummanam said.
