Due to the wrong policies of the central government, there has been a decline in GDP and a lot of increase in debt in the last years. The central government had a debt of Rs 53 lakh crore in the year 2014, which has increased to Rs 136 lakh crore.



Parliamentary Affairs Minister Shanti Kumar Dhariwal said this in the assembly on Tuesday. During this, he said that the country has registered the highest negative growth of 23.50 percent in GDP in the last 70 years.


The Central Government has increased the basic excise duty and various cesses on petrol and diesel by an additional Rs 31.50 per liter, in which the states have no share. Dhariwal said that the Central Government of Rajasthan has arrears of GST of Rs 5603 crore.

Earlier the state assembly passed the Rajasthan Goods and Services Tax (Amendment) Bill, 2021 by voice vote. Shanti Dhariwal introduced the bill in the house.
