Congress president Rahul Gandhi on Tuesday reacted to the vandalism of Periyar statue near Alangudi in Pudukkottai. Rahul wrote on Twitter, “When the RSS & BJP encouraged the tearing down of Lenin statues in Tripura, they signalled their cadres to destroy statues of those who opposed their ideology, like Periyar, the great social reformer who fought for the Dalits. His statue too was destroyed today in Tamil Nadu.” The head of the Periyar statue was cut and dropped on the ground by unidentified persons on Monday night.

Congress leader Rahul Gandhi took a dig at GST on Twitter and called it 'Gabbar Singh Tax' on Sunday. He referred to the World Bank records that stated that GST's structure is very complex and that its tax slabs are the world's second highest. GST, implemented by the BJP government on July 1, 2017 has four tax slabs (5%, 12%, 18%, 28%) while most of the other countries only have one or two. According to the World Bank, even though the multiple tax slabs will affect economic activity for some time, the benefits over the long run will overweigh the problems faced now.
