"Heard people talking about change in the decision over Goods and Service Tax (GST), I want to assure them that this government is democratic in nature and if you have any problem come forward ... we will not hesitate to look into their issues as there is no issue of prestige," Singh, the Minister of State in Prime Minister s Office, said.

Singh was addressing a function organised in connection with the launch of second-phase of Madura promotion campaign.

The first phase of the campaign was launched by Singh in Srinagar on October 5.

On October 12, industrialists in Jammu criticised the Centre for its recently announced incentive scheme under GST regime, saying "if not revisited, it will serve as a death knell for majority of nearly 10,000 units in Jammu and Kashmir and render lakhs of people jobless".

They sought intervention of Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti and threatened to pour on roads if the promises made to them prior to the implementation of the GST regime in the state were not fulfilled .

"The most awaited policy of the central government, which was issued through a notification on October 5 under budgetary support for incentives under GST, is nothing but a crude joke with the industrialists in Jammu and Kashmir.

"It is in fact deniable of incentives," leaders of Federation of Industries (FOI), an amalgam of various associations and industrial fraternity, had said.

Citing the example of a father who brings a new pair of shoes to his son, the minister said if the shoe pinches he replaces it with a new pair.

"Under Modi government, there will be no discrimination on creed, caste, religion and regionalism." "This is a democratic government and gone are the days when families were ruling. We have 18 crore youth who will get the right to vote next year on attaining the age of 18," he said.
