New Delhi: The main opposition Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) and its alliance-ruled states would oppose any move of the Congress-led United Progressive Alliance (UPA) government to go for a mid-year implementation of the proposed goods and service tax (GST) regime in the country.
Ahead of the meeting of state finance ministers on Thursday on GST, BJP finance ministers on Wednesday held a meeting with party chief Nitin Gadkari to chalk out a common strategy. GST should be introduced only after all the issues are resolved and after taking into confidence all the stake holders, said senior party leader Yashwant Sinha.
