Finance minister Arun Jaitley on Saturday hoped the Congress will “see reason” and help in passage of GST legislation, stuck in Rajya Sabha, in the Budget session of Parliament beginning next month.
“It (GST) is the important reform of UPA. If I had to credit the authorship of it, I have to give credit to them. Now, If the author turns against his own script, what do I make… I have reached out (and) I have spoken to them. I have explained to them and I hope they will see reason… (and) see the rationale behind passing GST,” he said.
