Union minister of state for finance Anand Rao Adsul has blamed states, going to polls shortly, for the delay in introduction of value added tax (VAT) system.

Mr Adsul told newsmen on Sunday that though all the states unanimously agreed at the meeting of the chief ministers and finance ministers, convened by the Prime Minister Atal Bihari Vajpayee, to introduce VAT in their states, later they went back on their word due to political reasons. (PTI)
