AAP, BJP spar on Twit­ter over GST

The Times of India (New Delhi edition) - - TIMES CITY - TIMES NEWS NET­WORK

New Delhi: AAP and BJP ha- ve clashed on Twit­ter over the stand taken by both par­ties on GST ex­emp­tions for traders.

Delhi BJP has ac­cused AAP and Congress of op­pos­ing the Cen­tre’s de­ci­sion to keep the ex­emp­tion limit at Rs 75 lakh.

Deputy chief min­is­ter Man­ish Siso­dia has, on the other hand, claimed that the BJP gov­ern­ment at the Cen­tre wanted to bring traders with even Rs 5 lakh an­nual turnover un­der GST, but it was only af­ter AAP’s op­po­si­tion in the GST coun­cil that the limit was ex­tended to Rs 20 lakh.

Delhi BJP on Sun­day tweeted that it was the Modi gov­ern­ment that reached a con­sen­sus of Rs 40 lakh as ex­emp­tion limit.

Siso­dia shot back with his claim on Twit­ter and re­torted, “Who can be the big­gest en­emy of the traders in the coun­try!” He added that Delhi has the high­est e-way bill limit among all states.

Siso­dia also said that AAP con­tin­ued to op­pose the tax slab of 18% to 28% fixed by BJP since the be­gin­ning.

He then added in an­other tweet that de­spite the “re­gres­sive poli­cies” of BJP, the Delhi gov­ern­ment cush­ioned the hit faced by the traders.
