The BJP Parliamentary Party meeting is underway in New Delhi on Tuesday (August 2) ahead of the Parliament session. Sources say long-pending GST Bill issue is being discussed in the meeting. Earlier BJP has a whip to its members asking them to be present in the House for the next three days during which the party expects the legislation to be passed. Party sources said the whip has been issued in connection with the key reform bill, which has been high on the government’s agenda but stalled by Congress over some provisions. The BJP-led NDA lacks a majority in the Upper House but has managed to get support of several regional parties on the GST bill. To bring Congress on board, the government last week cleared changes in the constitutional amendment bill, including doing away with the additional 1 per cent tax by producing states and compensating all states for any revenue loss in the first five years post the GST roll out.
