Vastavam web: The union government is making huge arrangement to welcome GST this mid night at Parliament central hall. President of India Pranab Mukherjee, Prime Minister Narendra Modi, Amitabh Bacchan, Latha Mangeshkar, Ratan Tata and others will attend the program. It will be a starry midnight in the historic Central Hall on June 30 that will have from megastar Amitabh Bachchan to industry doyen Ratan Tata in attendance at the launch of India’s most sweeping tax reform, GST. Unlike the last midnight event held in 1997 on the occasion of golden jubilee of the Independence at a special session of Parliament, it will be a gala event at its circular-shaped hall that has been loaned for the launch of the historic reform.
Reminiscent of India’s tryst with destiny on the midnight of August 15, 1947, the event will be graced by President Pranab Mukherjee and Prime Minister Narendra Modi. Congress party has however decided to boycott the event apparently to protest against hardship being caused to small and medium enterprises and traders. Left and TMC too are boycotting the event.
