Chief Minister Shok Gehlot has now targeted the Narendra Modi government at the Center for bringing the tax on essential food items. Ashok Gehlot has tweeted in this regard.

Targeting the Modi government by tweeting, he said that in the year of Amrit Mahotsav of independence, the food items like flour, pulses, rice, jaggery, wheat, millet, jowar, milk, curd, cheese, buttermilk, etc. It's an Unfortunate decision to impose GST. For the first time in 75 years of independence, essential food items have been taxed.

This is a step to snatch the morsel from the mouth of the poor. Mandis are being closed across the country in protest against this decision, which shows how much public anger is caused by this move. This anti-people move by the Modi government should be withdrawn immediately.
