GST is a great step towards transparency, transformation: PM Modi in Lok Sabha

Highlights from Prime Minister's speech in Lok Sabha:

You might know that some time ago an issue regarding tax came up in SC. Issue was Coconut should be considered a fruit or vegetable. This example is good enough to understand the ups and downs nation has seen with respect to tax situation.


It's true that someone gives 'birth' while someone else 'nurtures it' (on GST Bill). It is not a victory of a particular pol party.


GST means 'Great Step towards transformation', 'Great Step towards transparency' in India.


This is not a victory of a particular party. It's a victory of high democratic principles, victory of all political parties.
