New Delhi, Attacking the NDA government on the flawed implementation of GST, senior Congress leader and former finance Minister P Chidambaram on Monday questioned the silence of Prime Minister Narendra Modi, Finance Minister Arun Jaitley and acting Finance Minister Piyush Goyal on the issue.
In a series of tweets, Mr Chidambaram said, ‘Why do the PM, FM and Acting FM refuse to speak on the numerous flaws in the implementation of GST?’
In another tweet, he said, ‘Does government know that millions of traders and exporters are affected because their money is stuck and not being refunded promptly?’
‘How long can government use the temporary Form GSTR-3B? Is it legally valid? Why have GSTR-Form 2 and GSTR-Form 3 not been notified even after 12 months’ Mr Chidambaram asked.
‘If GST is a ‘victory of integrity’ and ‘celebration of honesty’, why did the BJP oppose it and stall it for 5 years?,’ the Congress leader wondered.
