GST Bill will ‘definitely’ be passed: Javadeker

Lucknow: A day after Parliament was adjourned sine die, the government today came down heavily on the Congress, blaming it for the near washout of the monsoon session and asserted that the GST Bill will “definitely” be passed.

"GST Bill will definitely be passed.," Union Environment and Forest Minister Prakash Javadeker told reporters here.

“GST Bill will definitely be passed,” Union Environment and Forest Minister Prakash Javadeker told reporters here.

“I tell you that GST Bill will definitely be passed. You take it down. Even in the Rajya Sabha, we enjoy majority for GST,” Union Environment and Forest Minister Prakash Javadeker told reporters here.

He also hinted that a special session could be called for passage of GST.

Both the Lok Sabha and the Rajya Sabha were adjourned sine die yesterday and the two Houses have not yet been prorogued.

“As you know this session has been adjourned sine die, but not prorogued,” he replied to a question whether a special session would be convened.
