Struggling to transact any legislative business, thanks to a rebellious opposition, the government is going all out to make one last push for the goods and services tax (GST) days before the Monsoon Session of Parliament ends.
However, with the Congress relentlessly calling for resignations of BJP ministers allegedly involved in financial improprieties, it is unlikely it will allow the bill to be tabled.
BJP MP Bhupendra Yadav confirmed to Media the government will list the Goods and Services Tax (GST) Constitutional Amendment Bill for business in the Rajya Sabha on August 11, two days before the Monsoon Session ends.
The BJP, with 48 seats in the 245 seat Rajya Sabha, is woefully short of a majority. The Congress has 68 seats.
