Amit Shah who is on a two day visit to Goa has stated that implementation of Goods and Services Tax (GST) will allow India to compete with global economies and boost the Nation’s economy. Shah is in Goa to plan a strategy for the 2019 Lok Sabha polls.
The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) National President arrived in the coastal state on Saturday. He was received at the airport by Goa Chief Minister Manohar Parrikar, Union AYUSH Minister Shripad Naik, South Goa Member of Parliament Narendra Sawaikar, BJP’s national joint general secretary Santoshji, BJP Goa unit chief Vinay Tendulkar, and other leaders. 2, 500 party workers had also gathered to welcome BJP’s National President to Goa.
After Shah arrived in Goa, he visited Azad Maidan where he laid wreaths at the Martyrs memorial. “Their Supreme sacrifice for the liberation of Goa can never be forgotten,” Shah said on Twitter. BJP national President also planted a sapling at the Azad Maidan.
Shah is in Goa to chalk out a strategy for 2019 Lok Sabha elections. He will meet various members of the party and the coalition partners. Besides them Shah will be addressing industrialists, hotel owners, chartered accountants and doctors later in the evening.
Speaking on GST, Shah said, “What happened yesterday (Friday) at midnight, was the biggest tax reform since Independence. India and its 125 crore people are now ready to compete with the world. Whether in Kashmir, Tamil Nadu, Gujarat or Assam, everywhere there will be a common tax structure and there will be no impediments. By eliminating multiple taxes, and introducing only one tax, the BJP’s Narendra Modi government has delivered businessmen and entrepreneurs from Inspector Raj.”
