UP minister doesn’t know full form of GST

Lucknow: In a huge embarrassment to the Yogi Adityanath government in Uttar Pradesh, a senior Cabinet Minister on June 29 failed to state the full form of GST.
Minister for social welfare Ramapati Shastri had no idea what did GST stand for. “I know…I can say…give me some time,” was all he could say, when asked to state the full form of GST at a press conference at Maharajganj district on June 29.
Ironically Shastri had been deputed by Adityanath to meet the traders, explain to them the benefits of the GST and persuade them to call off their ongoing protests.
