Former Union Minister P. Chidambaram on Friday said the letter of finance ministers of Congress-ruled states has exposed the structural flaws in the design and implementation of the Goods and Services Tax (GST).
"Panic stricken government has no option but to concede demands for change. Thanks to Gujarat elections, government forced to heed advice of opposition and experts on flaws in implementation of GST," he said.
Chidambaram said the government avoided a debate and voting in the Rajya Sabha on GST Bills. Now, they cannot avoid a debate in public domain or in the GST Council, he said.
