Congress vice-president Rahul Gandhi on Saturday hit out at Prime Minister Narendra Modi by saying that the aim of GST is to break the backbone of India and strengthen the backbones of 5-6 selected industrialists.

Rahul said that the government which can tell people at 8 in the night that it is going to demonetise currency within 4 hours, doesn't know what is in the hearts of people.

“We gave Rs 35,000 Crore for MGNREGA but Modi Ji gave Rs 35,000 Crore for Tata Nano project,” said Rahul.

Earlier on Friday, Congress vice-president Rahul Gandhi on Friday criticised the GST council meet by saying that they will not allow Bhartiya Janata Party to impose ‘Gabbar Singh Tax’ on India. He urged them to give India a ‘Genuine Simple Tax.’

Rahul added that they cannot break the back of the small and medium businesses, crush the informal sector and destroy millions of jobs.              

Congress vice president gave three suggestions to them. Rahul urged them to correct the fundamental flaw in GST architecture to give India a Genuine Simple Tax.

Rahul asked BJP to not waste India’s time with lip service.

"Acknowledge your incompetence, shed your arrogance and listen to the people of India," said Rahul.
