The Congress has raised three objections to the Good and Services tax (GST) reforms after party president Sonia Gandhi and former PM Manmohan Singh met Prime Minister Narendra Modi at his official residence in New Delhi on Friday.
The Congress said the meeting was a constructive dialogue and that it has raised three demands, which are not political or partisan, said reports.
The demands include scrapping of 1% surcharge, capping GST and making provision for it, and a meaningful dispute resolution mechanism.
The meeting, which was a first ever since the Modi government came to power, was aimed at thawing relationship with the main opposition party and thereby pass key legislations in the Parliament.
Finance Minister Arun Jaitley and Parliamentary Affairs Minister M Venkaiah Naidu were also present during the meeting. Jaitley said that there would be more discussions on the GST issue with the opposition parties.
