Centre Rejects Congress' 3 Demands, Unfair To Put Riders On GST Bill: Venkaiah Naidu

New Delhi: Jan 17;  Union Minister M Venkaiah Naidu on Sunday criticised Congress saying it is "not fair" on its part to set conditions for the passage of the GST bill and if the said clauses were so crucial, the UPA could have brought these in the original bill when it was in power.

One condition (cap on taxes) put forth by Congress and reiterated by its Vice President Rahul Gandhi yesterday during an event in Mumbai was "not liked" by anybody, he said.

"Rahul Gandhi said (yesterday) the government (should) agree (with Congress's conditions for the passage of the bill). The government has agreed. The issue is about this cap which Congress has not proposed and it had not proposed it when it brought the bill and is suddenly now making it a condition. That is not fair on its (Congress') part," he told reporters here.
