‘Will defeat evil designs of government’
Srinagar: The congress has alleged that PDP-BJP coalition government was trying to implement the GST law in in Jammu and Kashmir to save their coalition.
Jammu and Kashmir Pradesh Congress Committee (JKPCC) Chief, G A Mir, in a press conference on Monday termed GST as ‘Government Saving Tax’ because the coalition government had “no way to come out from the present situation”.
Speaking to media at his Humhama residence following the Congress Legislative Party, Mir said that PDP leaders had failed to raise their voice against the GST in the Indian parliament when the bill was passed.
“Now, they are trying to mingle words to save their chair and to betray the people as well,” he added. “We won’t allow any compromise over the special position of JK. The state government should ensure the security of JK’s the special status,” he said.
Mir alleged that PDP-BJP alliance didn’t have the right intentions regarding the implementation of GST and “something fishy” was cooking in the corridors of power. He said that the alliance should take into consideration the special position of Jammu and Kashmir and refrain from any decisions that infringe J&K’s powers.
Mir said that congress will defeat the “evil designs” of the J&K government. Every mature person in JK, he said, was against the implementation of GST out of concern for the special status of J&K.
