Reacting on the statement given by West Bengal chief minister Mamta Banerjee against Modi government, BJP MP Shwet Malik on Sunday said the statement is “immature and hurt democratic values of the country”.
He said charges of “wrecking of federal structure” levelled by the Banerjee against Modi government are condemnable. He alleged that she had a separatist thinking and wanted to dilute the democratic system of India, except West Bengal which she considers her own empire.
“She is running an anarchist government for the last five years where no one is spared for questioning the government. She should shun hurting rich democratic ethos of the nation,” he added. Welcoming the move of Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Union finance minister Arun Jaitley of bringing in Goods and Services Tax Bill (GST), he said the bill is the most important tax reform in Indian history and will bring a new regime “One Nation One Tax”.
Malik said, “This will bring more transparency, attract more investments and will boost the growth of the country. It will be the best economic management of the country and will empower the states. This will increase revenues of states as well as centre.”
