PM Modi invites Sonia Gandhi, Manmohan Singh to discuss GST Bill

A day after Parliament witnessed bonhomie among members of treasury and opposition benches at the start of winter session, Prime Minister Narendra Modi has invited Congress President Sonia Gandhi and Manmohan Singh for tea this evening during which issues like GST may come up.

Modi invited the Congress leaders at his Race Course Road residence at 7 PM, said reports.

This assumes significance as the Government and the Congress are at loggerheads which is stalling the passage of crucial legislations like the Goods and Services Tax (GST) Bill.

Offering an olive branch to the Opposition to get the GST bill passed, Finance Minister Arun Jaitley had on Thursday said that Prime Minister Narendra Modi is willing to speak to everyone to get the landmark indirect tax law through.
