Kolkata: Trinamool supports GST “in principle” and made a commitment in the election manifesto to introduce it, said the party’s Chief National Spokesperson Derek O’Brien.
However, certain tax-related issues on which the state enjoys autonomy, will have to be sorted out before the GST Bill sees a safe passage, he said.
“There are certain tax-related issues that need to be sorted out. Some have been addressed, some are pending discussion. States have to be compensated adequately. Things are moving in the right direction so far,” said Mr O’Brien.
