In the weeks to come, the party plans to start an awareness campaign on the "steep tax" on diesel and petrol the Centre has levied since 2014. There was, however, no comment from Congress vicepresident Rahul Gandhi after the decisions were announced and his tweet from earlier in the day maintained GST is a "Gabbar Singh Tax". "To reduce the burden of price rise, government should include petrol, diesel and cooking gas in the GST", he tweeted. Our struggle for 18 per cent cap will continue. He said there should be one tax slab, and as low as possible. "Routine work, like birthday wishes isn't done by me, I give little inputs on it", said Rahul Gandhi.

On the campaign trail in Gujarat, Congress vice president Rahul Gandhi will today travel from Banaskantha to Patan on the second day of the fourth leg of his Navsarjan Yatra. This Gabbar Singh Tax is aimed at breaking the back of the small and medium scale industries.

Talking about the GST, the minister said, "Congress has been trying to take credit for GST rates revision, claiming that the rates have been revised after they demanded".
