NEW DELHI: In the backdrop of a pivotal meeting of the GST Council on Friday, Congress vice-president Rahul Gandhi said his party will not allow the BJP-led NDA government to enforce a “Gabbar Singh Tax” on the nation.

Mere hours after the GST Council headed by finance minister Arun Jaitley slashed the tax rate on 177 items of mass use, Rahul recounted the adverse effects of the landmark tax reform on India’s economy and asserted that the government must be checked from further exacerbating the people’s plight.

“We will not allow BJP to impose a Gabbar Singh Tax on India. They cannot break the back of the small and medium businesses, crush the informal sector and destroy millions of jobs,” he tweeted.

The Gandhi scion went on to offer “some suggestions” on how the Center can fix the GST and transform it into a “Genuine Simple Tax”, a term he has used in the past to describe the Congress party’s ideation of the tax policy.

“(1) Correct the fundamental flaw in GST architecture to give India a Genuine Simple Tax. (2) Don’t waste India’s time with lip service.(3) Acknowledge your incompetence, shed your arrogance and listen to the people of India,” Rahul said in another tweet.

The Goods and Services Tax, which is the Modi government’s flagship fiscal project, has been a favourite punching bag for Rahul since its implementation in July this year. He has frequently referred to it as “Gabbar Singh Tax”, a monicker derived from his comparison of the government looting the poor of their hard-earned money with the help of this tax, much like Bollywood villain Gabbar Singh.

Earlier today, the all-powerful GST Council pruned the list of 277 goods under the 28 per cent tax bracket to just 50 luxury and de-merit items, bringing 177 products – like chewing gum, chocolates, detergent, granite and marble – under the ambit of the lower 18 per cent tax rate.

Congress spokesperson Randeep Surjewala claimed that intense pressure from Rahul Gandhi had forced the council to take the monumental decision.
