Mayawati pledges support to GST but attacks govt on ‘intolerance’


New Delhi, Dec 1: Bahujan Samaj Party supremo Mayawati  announced support to the GST bill even as she attacked the government over alleged “intolerance, communalism and anarchy” in the country and demanded action against Minister V K Singh for his remarks on the killing of Dalit children in Haryana.

Participating in the debate on ‘Commitment to the Constitution’ in Rajya Sabha, she expressed concern over the condition of Scheduled Castes, OBCs and minorities particularly Muslims.

She also took strong objection to Singh’s ‘dog’ remarks after killing to two Dalit children in Haryana and demanded his dismissal from the Council of Ministers.

Singh should be “sent to jail as such people deserve to be in jail and not in Parliament,” she said.

The BSP chief dared Modi to take action against his own ministerial and party colleagues, who she alleged are making “provocative” remarks.

At the same time, she significantly chose the occasion to announce her unequivocal support to the GST bill, which is stuck in Rajya Sabha.

“If your government is fully confident that bringing the GST Bill is in the interest of the nation, it will bring a change in the economy and give a boost to it, the BSP will definitely back it. Our party supports the Bill in Parliament,” she said.
