In a significant development, YSR Congress came forward to support the BJP-led central government in the enactment of the long pending GST (Goods and Service Tax) bill in the Parliament in the ongoing monsoon session.
Union Urban Development Minister M Venkaiah Naidu took the initiative to convince the YSR Congress to speed up the process for the adoption of the bill.
Naidu called on Jagan over phone and explained the importance of the bill for the development of the state as well as the country by introducing a new tax regime.
Jagan reportedly assured Venkaiah of his party's support to the bill in the Lok Sabha. The party's MPs have already been asked to study the bill in detail and its benefits to Andhra Pradesh. All the MPs were already instructed to be present in Lok sabha to pass the bill.
