National No Comments on Jairam Ramesh said his party us not against Goods and Service Tax Bill 30

Lucknow: Stressing that his party was not against the Goods and Services Tax Bill, senior Congress leader Jairam Ramesh on Tuesday said the support of his party, which had suggested four amendments, was vital to get it passed in the Rajya Sabha.

“GST is in national interest but in 2011 when it was tabled in Parliament, BJP had opposed it because of one person — then chief minister of Gujarat Narendra Modi,” Ramesh told reporters here.

“Today the same person advocates its importance and does not want Congress to take credit for it,” he said, adding the GST Bill in its present form has many shortcomings.
