GST row: Enact own legislation under Section 5 of J&K Constitution, Tarigami to Govt


    SRINAGAR:¬†Alleging that the Government resolution on Goods and Services Tax (GST) was ‘ambigous’ and lacked clarity, Communist Party of India (M) lone member in the Legislative Assembly Mohammad Yousuf Tarigami today reiterated the demand to enact legislation under Section 5 of the State Constitution.

    “The resolution introduced by Finance Minister Dr Haseeb Drabu yesterday in the House is ambiguous and lacks clarity and Government should have come out with a concrete proposal suggesting way forward on the basis of Section 5 of the Constitution of J&K, which provides residuary powers to our State Legislature,” Mr Tarigami said in the House today. ¬†(UNI)
