Rahul Gandhi said, "We asked Modi govt to do a pilot test of GST and urged them to not impose an untested policy on the people. But they did not listen. We will simplify the GST."

He alleged that BJP is in a process to bureaucratise every institution of the Government. "This is because they have no grasp of the real world. Demonetisation and GST are other examples of this."

Talking about BJP's Pulses Policy that impacted farmers of Karnataka drastically, he said, " Our policies reflect a balance between consumer and producer. We believe policies should protect farmers. Our govt in Karnataka has done this."

On diminishing farmers' yield, Rahul Gandhi said, "We should provide farmers with right MSP, protect their yield from natural calamities, and improve seed quality. There is no one fool-proof solution for this."

"We have to ensure that banking system should cater to MSMEs and young entrepreneurs. They should be brought into political system. Big industrialists don't have this problem, but MSMEs face a lot of difficulty," he added.
