8 Instances when Rahul Gandhi proved his mettle

    Rahul Gandhi – the mere mention of the name is sufficient to help flash a smile across your face, right? We completely agree that the man has committed more than his share of gaffes. From his mix up of ‘balatkar and bhrashtachaar’ to ‘Steve Jobs of Microsoft’, enough has been said and made fun of, about the President-in-waiting of the Indian National Congress. He has been trolled to no end and every speech he makes and every interview he gives ends up adding more fuel to the fire. But if we were to take off our tinted glasses and look at him from a new perspective, a perspective unadulterated by various trolls who are at work incessantly to make a parody out of him, we would be able to notice that Rahul Gandhi is a much better politician than he is ever given the credit for. Agreed, he is and maybe cannot ever be as good an orator as Modi is, but he can be the leader that India so desperately needs now to help put an end to the diminutive and regressive politics that is being played out. To put it mildly, the man is a target for the ruling party. And it is an uphill task for him already to climb out of the ‘battle of personalities’ and change the narrative towards the policies. And in order to help burst the bubble of fake news about Rahul Gandhi, we bring to you just a few instances when he absolutely poked glaring holes through the policies of the current government/ripped the current government a new one.


    7On GST

    Rahul Gandhi has been quite spoken against the implementation of a half-baked product in form of Goods and Services Tax. Before the launch of GST on 1st July, 2017 he had said,” A reform that holds great potential is being rushed through in a half-baked way with a self-promotional spectacle #GSTTamasha. But like demonetisation, GST is being executed by an incompetent and insensitive government without planning, foresight and institutional readiness. India deserves a GST rollout that does not put crores of its ordinary citizens, small businesses & traders through tremendous pain & anxiety.” Rahul Gandhi, who has probably taken a leaf from Modi’s book and had been speaking to the masses at his rallies in colloquial hindi said,” Their GST is not GST. GST means Gabbar Singh Tax. This is causing a loss to the country. Small shopkeepers are finished. Lakhs of youths have been unemployed. But they are still not ready to listen. Congress GST = Genuine Simple Tax. Modi ji’s GST = Gabbar Singh Tax = yeh kamaai mujhe de de (give me the income)”

    Cleartax defines GST as ‘Goods & Services Tax Law in India is a comprehensive, multi-stage, destination-based tax that will be levied on every value addition. In simple words, GST is an indirect tax levied on the supply of goods and services. GST Law has replaced many indirect tax laws that previously existed in India.’ Like any other scheme, GST has its benefits and disadvantages. The over-powering benefit from GST is that it had removed the cascading effect of the erstwhile tax system. A few other benefits are that there are lesser compliances and increased efficiency in logistics.

    On the other hand, it has ended up lowering the exemption limit for SMEs from a turnover of Rs. 150 lakh per year to a meagre Rs. 20 lakh per year. Some critics are fearing the revival of ‘Inspector Raj’ as government has set up an authority to make sure that the reduction in price of the goods after reduction in tax rates is passed on to the consumers. Rahul Gandhi like a true opposition leader has been asking the right questions of the government on GST.
