HAILING the Goods and Services Tax (GST), BJP chief Amit Shah on Saturday said that the new tax regime would accelerate the country’s economic growth and end the ‘inspector raj’.
The GST was formally launched in Delhi in a midnight function in Parliament.

“The launch of GST has dissolved over 17 different taxes, converting them into a single tax, which will help traders, businessmen and small entrepreneurs. The BJP Government, under the leadership of Narendra Modi, has provided relief to them from ‘inspector raj’,” Shah said.
The BJP National President, who arrived at Dabolim airport near here around 11.30 am for his two-day State visit, was addressing a gathering there.

Shah said there might be some teething problems with the implementation of the GST, but they could be worked out.
“But this tax reform will accelerate the economic growth of the country making it a global leader... It will end several tax-related legislations,” Shah said.

At Dabolim airport, Shah was given a warm welcome by over 2,500 party workers. Goa Chief Minister Manohar Parrikar, BJP Goa unit chief Vinay Tendulkar, party’s national Joint General Secretary Santoshji, Union AYUSH Minister Shripad Naik, South Goa Member of Parliament Narendra Sawaikar and other leaders were among those present.
