SRINAGAR: During the All parties meeting, Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti on Tuesday said the idea behind convening it was to evolve a broad based consensus on adopting any tax regime in the state.
She appealed the representatives of all political parties to come forward with their suggestions and remarks on the subject so that a view, which represents the aspirations of all sections of the society, is taken by the government.
Thanking the members of all political parties for having made it to the All Party Meeting, Mehbooba said the implementation of GST regime in the state is a subject matter of collective decision by every section of society and not of government alone. She hoped that fruitful discussions on the subject would be held in the Assembly during forthcoming special session.
Addressing the participants, the Chief Minister said the government is open to suggestions from all sections including political quarters and business class. She hoped the participants would discuss the provisions of proposed laws in detail and come up with concrete suggestions and recommendations by which the fiscal and political autonomy of the state is not affected if the proposed law is decided to be enacted.
