Don't indulge in BJP's stupid acts, Cong leader tells Amitabh on GST promotion
A Congress leader has taken a serious objection to Amitabh Bachchan for being a brand ambassador of GST video, calling the promotion of GST as 'foolish act'.
Congress leader Sanjay Nirupam advised Amitabh Bachchan to withdraw from GST ad as brand ambassador as well as he cautioned the star that with the GST going to be implemented in the present form he might have to incur traders wrath.
The government has roped in Bollywood superstar A to promote Goods and Services Tax, ahead of the sweeping tax reform's implementation scheduled from July 1. In the video, Bachchan explains GST as an unifying force just like the three colours in the national flag. GST is an initiative to create 'one nation, one tax, one market', he says.
Big B too replied in a series of tweets to Nirupam's objection. He gave crisp reply: "they asked me I did it".
