As the Goods and Services Tax(GST) is all set to rollout on Friday midnight, a minister of the very Bhartiya Janata Party(BJP) is unable to even spell out the full-form of GST.
In a talk with the local businessmen, Ramapati Shastri, Minister of Social Welfare and Minister of SC & ST Welfare in the Yogi Adityanath government, struggled to give an answer when he was asked to expand the abbreviation of the new tax regime.

“I know the full form. I am going through all the relevant documents to gather more knowledge about the GST,” Shastri told the media.
Though someone from the background tried to hint the minister, he failed to make use of the clue.
The minister represents the Mankapur constituency of Uttar Pradesh.
