Uttar Pradesh deputy chief minister and BJP leader, Dinesh Sharma, on Sunday hailed PM Modi’s statement on ‘Diwali arriving early’ after the decisions taken by the Goods and Service Tax (GST) Council, citing that everybody will benefit from the tax reform.
PM Modi has asserted that Diwali, the ‘festival of lights,’ has come early for the citizens due to the latest decisions taken by the GST Council.
Sharma said, “I would like to congratulate the GST Council for making it a big and grand success, because our state is surely going to improve after this development. Also Uttar Pradesh will be benefitting a lot from it. Be it the businessmen or a family, all will benefit from this reform. Our government has kept everyone in consideration.”
Stating similar views, another BJP leader Shahnawaz Hussain said, “The GST reform is a gift to the people and we all should happily accept it. Keeping everyone’s concern and views in mind the reform has been implemented. The traders and businessmen of the country will totally benefit from it. Prime Minister Modi, who has always thought for its people, has today proved it that he will bring growth to the nation,” he said.
This statement comes a day after Prime Minister Modi, while addressing a public rally in Dwarka, said, “Diwali has come early for our citizens due to the decisions taken in the GST Council. We had said we would study all aspects relating to the GST for three months, including shortcomings. And thus, the decisions were taken with consensus at the GST Council”.
