New Delhi: In a shocking revelation, a veteran MP confessed to Faking News that he still doesn’t know what GST actually is. The MP in question has been opposing GST for the last decade despite not knowing what it is. We can’t reveal his name as the MP has plans to criticize GST even more once it is passed and doesn’t want the world to know that he is clueless on the topic.
“It is not something new; I have held strong opinions on many important bills in the Parliament without knowing what those bills were all about. I am sure GST is important because they have been talking about it for a long time but not quite sure why though. I have plans to read everything about it if it gets passed, as long as the bill is not passed, what is the point of reading it?” the MP said explaining his situation.
“What you guys should notice is my integrity and consistency. I opposed this bill in the Parliament during UPA Government and opposed it during NDA Government as well. This kind of consistency is very rare in political circles, very few men of integrity left. I am not stopping even if they pass the GST bill, I will keep criticizing it and call it Anti-Poor as long as there is a breath left in my body”, the MP said.
When we asked the honourable Member of Parliament whether he has any clue at all about GST, he said,”Oh sure I do have a faint idea. It must be one of those renaming things. Like VT was changed to CST, they must be changing some place’s name to GST. Don’t know which one though and frankly, I don’t care either. My job is to provide strong opposition and that is what I am doing.”
After that, the MP left us as he had to get wired up for a news debate on GST on a leading news channel.
