Minister of State for Parliamentary Affairs Mukhtar Abbas Naqvi on Sunday accused the Congress of now cooperating in the passage of Goods and Services Tax (GST) Bill in Winter Session of Parliament because of its ego and expressed hope that the opposition cooperates with the government so that the development of the nation is not stalled.

“We have been totally committed to the development of the nation and that is why we wanted the GST Bill to be passed in the Winter Session. But unfortunately the Congress Party because of its ego didn’t allow the passage of GST Bill,” Naqvi told ANI.

“We will try our best to pass the bill in the upcoming Budget Session. We hope the Opposition favours the development of the nation and allows the house to function,” he added.

Naqvi’s remark came a day after Union Finance Minister Arun Jaitley said the government was optimistic about the GST bill being passed in the Budget Session as numbers in the Rajya Sabha will tilt in its favour.

“Halfway through the next session, the numbers in the Upper House will also change. I am reasonably optimistic as far as the next session is concerned that we will be able to push it (GST Bill),” Jaitley said, as the strength of parliamentarians belonging to the Congress and its allies would start to diminish.

The new tax regime should have been introduced much earlier, said Jaitley.

The government had announced a target date of April 2016 for the rollout of the GST regime, but is now eyeing a start in the middle of fiscal year 2016-17.

      Very strange questions are being raised by the BJP leaders for the last one and a half year. GST was not a pro-development legislation in their opinion when they opposed it tooth and nail from 2007 to 2014. Now, suddenly it has become a pro-development legislation after they came into power in 2014. BJP leaders are contradicting themselves on various schemes after coming to power. How much loss the BJP has caused to this nation during the 7 years they opposed the implementation of G.S.T. Have these leaders ever applied their mind to it?
