Prime Minister Narendra Modi Saturday asserted that Diwali the ‘festival of lights’ has come early for citizens due to the latest decisions taken by the Goods and Service Tax (GST) Council.
“Diwali has come early for our citizens due to the decisions taken in the GST Council. We had said we will study all aspects relating to GST for three months, including shortcomings. And thus, the decisions were taken with consensus at the GST Council,” Prime Minister Narendra Modi said at public rally in Dwarka.
He said: “When there is trust in a government, and when policies are made with the best of intentions, it is natural for people to support us for the best interests of the nation. The common citizen of India wants the fruits of development to reach him or her. Nobody wants their children to live in poverty. We want to help our people fulfill that dream and we want to fight poverty.”
The Prime Minister said the world's attention is on India and people are coming to invest here.
