GST row: Resolution ‘sham, bereft of specifics’, Omar tweets


Expressing absolute disappointment over the passing of the Goods and Services Tax (GST) resolution by the Jammu and Kashmir Assembly, National Conference working president and former chief minister Omar Abdullah on Wednesday termed it as a ‘sham’, adding that the resolution is bereft of specifics.

Drawing an comparison with a blank cheque, Omar said it was like asking for the members to sign a cheque without telling them the amount that will be entered on the cheque before presentation.

Omar took to Twitter to express the same:

Criticising the BJP-PDP-led Government in Jammu and Kashmir, Omar said the government could not come up with convincing arguments.

“As expected the Govt. reply was full of hyperbole & devoid of substance. The BJPDP Govt had decided to apply GST so why the theatrics?” he tweeted.

The Jammu and Kashmir Assembly passed the GST resolution earlier today.
