Shivsena Leader Sanjay Raut has again targeted the Narendra Modi government. In fact, MPs from TRS, TMC, DMK, RJD, AAP, NCP, Samajwadi Party and Shiv Sena protested in front of Mahatma Gandhi’s statue in the Parliament complex, demanding GST payment to different states. During this, Sanjay Raut said that the Maharashtra government has formed a non-BJP government, so what a crime it has become in democracy. He said that Maharashtra owes 25000 crores to Delhi. But Delhi is not ready to give. How will we fight Corona, save people’s lives?
It is well known that while the above things are going well in the Shiv Sena and BJP, both the parties are not leaving any chance to attack each other. This is why every day new statements are coming out. Sanjay Raut has targeted the central government for the second time on Thursday. Earlier, Sanjay Raut has said in the Rajya Sabha on Thursday that Maharashtra has done a good job in controlling the epidemic and no one has recovered from eating papad. His statement in this way suggests that the fight for the upcoming verbal war is going to be more interesting.

It may be noted that many states including Punjab, Tamil Nadu, Chhattisgarh have turned down the offer of ‘Letter of Comfort’ to the Central Government states for payment of GST. Chhattisgarh Chief Minister Bhupesh Baghel has demanded that the central government immediately provide Rs 2,828 crore, which is the outstanding amount for 2020-21.
On the other hand, Tamil Nadu Chief Minister K.K. Palaniswamy has written a letter to Prime Minister Narendra Modi and demanded that the states should fully compensate for the loss due to GST. He said that it is the responsibility of the central government. Telling the states that they themselves take loans, this will affect the resources of the states.
