“Under the cover of new law, the trend has started where the ED and CBI can implicate any trader or businessman. When Union finance minister Nirmala Sitharaman was discussing this law with the finance ministers of the states, only I and Delhi finance minister Atishi had protested. But due to support by other states, the centre was successful in getting this law passed. If INDIA bloc government is formed at the Centre, this law will be repealed,” he said.

“During the two-year tenure, the Bhagwant Mann government has taken many decisions for the benefit of businessmen. Green stamp paper policy for new industries is among them. Apart from this, the one-time settlement scheme brought by the Punjab government has proved to be the most successful scheme to date in GST matters,” he said.
