No one can dare commit any misadventure and our brave forces, due to the government’s strong political will, are ready to meet all challenges,” he said at an annual fair of trader community at Agroha in Hisar.
For the last many years, there were talks about bringing in GST, but by combining all including VAT, Octroi, Service Tax and Excise Duty, Narendra Modi has fulfilled the dream of traders. An extremely courageous and decisive step has been taken by Narendra Modi by fulfilling GST dream, he said.
Shah said more than 250 initiatives have been taken by the Modi government to improve trade and because of this the country has moved forward in Global Competitive Index.
Shah said, “Earlier economists did not understand that this country is of businessmen, small traders, this country was of people who are capable of working on their own. Nobody can give employment to 125 crore people. BJP has enabled the youth of this country of giving employment through self-employment schemes.”
