GST rollout, launch in India: “The protest is against the implementation of the law through an ordinance instead of discussing the same in the state assembly,” Opposition leader Ramesh Chennithala said here today. The Congress led UDF opposition has decided to boycott the government function to be held at Kochi tomorrow as part of rolling out of GST from midnight, to protest against not discussing and passing the state GST bill in the assembly.

The GST bill has been passed by all states, except Jammu and Kashmir. Though Kerala had an opportunity to do so, government had brought an ordinance in this regard making the house a ‘scarecrow’, he said. Chennithala also said that implementing a law significant to the state without a discussion in the assembly amounted to “showing disrespect to democracy.”
