“Any stalemate could only be resolved based on give and take. On GST, the government is willing to accommodate views of Congress party to the extent feasible. Congress should reciprocate to enable the much-awaited tax reform through introduction of GST. It was in this context that I met Congress President with a request to cooperate for early passage of GST Bill. It was very unfortunate that Congress described government’s outreach to Congress as only meant for optics," Naidu said in a statement.
Naidu drove to Gandhi's residence at 10 Janpath to seek Congress cooperation in passage of GST and Real Estate Bills.
"Further to the meeting between the Prime Minister and the Congress President in November last year, several rounds of discussions have taken place between the government and Congress leaders. Issues raised by Congress party have been discussed threadbare and what is feasible has been communicated to the Congress’ interlocutors," Naidu said.
