Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman’s flub throughout a media briefing on the choices of the GST (Items and Providers Tax) council, shared by many on social media, impressed a jibe from Congress chief Pawan Khera as we speak.
On Wednesday, the Finance Minister stated the GST council had deferred a choice on 28 per cent tax on casinos, on-line gaming, horse-racing and lottery pending consultations.
In a brief video clip, Nirmala Sitharaman is heard saying: “The second GOM, associated to the betting, playing, casinos, horse-trading (corrects herself) horse-racing…”
The clip was shared by Congress’s social media convenor Ruchira Chaturvedi with the remark: “GST on horse-trading?”
Pawan Khera then commented on the tweet.
“I knew Nirmala Sitharaman ji had the flexibility to assume out of the (poll) field. Sure Nirmala ji, there ought to be GST on horse-trading,” the Congress chief wrote.
I knew @nsitharaman ji had the flexibility to assume out of the (poll) field. Sure Nirmala ji, there ought to be GST on horse buying and selling. https://t.co/H8UdMEzeLW
