Congress to keep struggling for 18% GST cap: Rahul

"Thank you, Gujarat. Your elections did what Parliament and common sense could not do", he said, adding that the government had finally recognised the merit of capping GST at 18%.

Earlier in the day, the GST Council chose to reduce tax rate on a wide range of mass use items - from chewing gums to detergents - to 18 per cent from current 28 per cent.

"These are our demands".

Gandhi also suggested the government to give the country a "genuine simple tax" and alleged that it should not "waste time" of the country by engaging in "lip service".

Rahul Gandhi, said, " The government which can tell people at 8PM in the night that it is going to demonetise currency within four hours, doesn't know what is in the hearts of people". If BJP doesn't do it, Congress will."Countering Gandhi, Javadekar responded: "Congress wants to increase the tax burden". "But we are not satisfied yet". "The aim of GST is to break the backbone of India and strengthen the backbones of a selected few, 5-6 industrialists", he said.

Before embarking on his campaign, Mr. Gandhi offered prayers at the renowned Akshardham Temple in Gandhinagar, which also hosted Prime Minister Narendra Modi during its silver jubilee celebrations.
