Taking a dig at the BJP led NDA government at the Centre, former prime minister Manmohan Singh has said that the Congress would have implemented the Goods and Services Tax (GST) after considerable preparation.
Addressing a rally in Gujarat, Rahul said, "GST is one tax reform, not five tax. The Centre does not know the meaning of GST. They made the GST complex. India doesn't want five different types of taxes. There's a need to make structural changes in the GST."
Amid the Opposition's outcry, the Centre recently announced moving 178 items from the 28 percent to the 18 percent tax bracket under the GST, applicable from November 15.
