BJP to oppose banking Bill: Yashwant
“Don't blame the BJP for the delay in GST,” Sinha said. “It is all due to the government and its penchant for developing wisdom and adding new things to Bills every day – the government's wisdom tooth is getting bigger by the day!” Outlining the history of GST, Sinha said his standing committee had planned to give its recommendations in the Monsoon Session but the finance ministry never gave its final view on the Bill. Later, when the new finance minister P Chidambaram came in, he began discussions afresh with the group of state finance ministers and even appointed two committees to examine the issue. We wrote to the finance ministry, Sinha said, to ask which was the final GST Bill that needed to be examined. “We were told the committees will submit their reports by December 31, after which the finance ministry will apply its mind to whether any new amendments were needed… So don't blame us for any delay.”
