NDA meets opposition to pass ‘GST Bill’
In an effort to pass the key Constitutional amendment bill, the NDA-lead center government is planning to reach the opposition to avoid the hurdle. The Good and Service Tax bill is a crucial amendment, which will boost the economic strategy and the growth plan of the central government. Reports say that, center has considered about the inclusion of some suggestion, which was put forward by the opposition parties, particularly Indian National Congress party. During the last session, the congress has raised seven demands, including the tax neutral rate. Media reported as a source as saying, Center had convened a meeting on Monday in the North Block for discussing the tax neutral rates. Today some of the senior leaders, like Union Home Minster Rajnath Singh, Finance Minister Arun Jaitley, and Parliament affairs Minister Venkaiah Naidu, will meet to bring-out a parliament strategy for the coming winter session. The winter session of parliament is likely to start on coming Thursday, and the bill will be introduced on the initial days. Meanwhile, the NDA has the forethought to encounter the regional parties, as the Congress-suggestions are impossible for the deliberation. The NDA-government needs two-third majority in the Rajya Sabha and Lok Sabha to pass the bill. Unfortunately, the NDA only have feeble representatives in the opposition-dominated Rajya Sabha. After a failed attempt to convince the opposition house leaders, the NDA top regime has even reached out to the Congress front-runners; says a source to Medias. The non-congress parties are approached and have been addressed with a sympathetic face, and a semi-friends reaction has been secured. The regional parties, like Trinamool, AIADMK, and TRS, are the main target. Meanwhile, rising speculations, Union Finance Minister will meet the West Bengal Finance Minister on Tomorrow. As Bihar is a consuming economy, it seems the JD(U) won’t put hurdle before the government.Earlier, in last parliament session, the government failed to attain support to pass the bill. However, it won’t be that easy to pass the bill this time.
