GST wasn’t implemented earlier as negotiations were not done with clean heart: Goyal

Mumbai: Union Railway Minister Piyush Goyal said that the previous governments could not successfully implement the Goods and Services Tax (GST) as their negotiations did not come from a “clean heart.”

“GST is something which was pending since last 15 years. The first time the concept thrown open was in 2003. But the earlier governments could not negotiate and successfully implement GST because the negotiation didn’t come from a position of strength,” Goyal said while addressing a gathering here on Thursday.

“It didn’t come with credibility and commitment that is required in any negotiation to be successful, and possibly the negotiation didn’t come from a clean heart where you have the track record of fulfilling past commitments. Prime Minister Narendra Modi has given that leading edge to India that we had required for a very, very long time,” he added.

Goyal went on to add that the idea of having a USD 5-trillion economy is possible in two ways.

“One can hugely build up fiscal deficits and show growth in short-run, but to sustain in long-run, one will have to have strong leadership in place and ensure sustainability of both economy and environment. One will also have to ensure that we are recognised in the world as an honest country, as a country where business can be done with equal opportunity for everybody,” he said.

Rohith Vemula’s death anniversary: His mother vows to fight communal forces

Hyderabad: The mother of Rohith Vemula, the research scholar of University of Hyderabad (UoH) who committed suicide in 2016, on Thursday vowed to fight the communal forces, which she alleged were responsible for her son’s death.

She took the pledge for justice at a march, ‘Rohith Shahadath Din 2019’ organised by University of Hyderabad (UoH) here inside the varsity campus on the third death anniversary of Rohith Vemula.

Vemula, a Ph.D. scholar at the varsity, was found hanging from a ceiling fan in a hostel room on January 17, 2016. He was reportedly upset over the disciplinary action that was taken against him by the university authorities.
In a press release issued by the JAC students, Radhika Vemula said, “I have decided to fight with a conscious determination against the Hindu communal and anti-constitutional forces responsible for the death of Rohith.”

“Though there were national wide movements, yet these communal forces didn’t change. Instead, the same forces are responsible for the disappearance of Najeeb and nobody knows whether he is alive or dead. After this brutal act I feel like taking forward a serious fight without any fear,” she added.

For the first time in three years since his demise, the police allowed Radhika Vemula and Raja Vemula, Rohith’s mother and brother, into the campus.

Laxmaiah (State President, KNPS), J B Raju, Transgender activist Meera Sanghamitra, and representatives from various student organisations addressed the gathering.
