कांग्रेस राज में देश पर लगता था 31% ‘नेहरू टैक्स’, देखिए कैसे


गुजरात चुनाव में जीएसटी को गब्बर सिंह टैक्स बताकर प्रमुख मुद्दा बनाने की कोशिश करने वाले कांग्रेस उपाध्यक्ष राहुल गांधी खुद घेरे में आ गए हैं। रिसर्च में जो बातें सामने आई हैं, उससे यह पता चला है कि जिन 178 जरूरी वस्तुओं पर इस समय सरकार ने जीएसटी लगाने के बाद 18 फीसदी टैक्स लगाया है, उस पर कांग्रेस के समय में 31% टैक्स लगता था। खास बात यह है कि 178 वस्तुओं पर ये टैक्स नेहरू के जमाने से ही लग रहा था। कांग्रेस के कई दशक के शासन तक कुछ जरूरी वस्तुओं पर लगातार 31% टैक्स वसूल किया जाता रहा। आखिर कांग्रेस के किसी भी प्रधानमंत्री ने इसे कम करने की कोशिश क्यों नहीं की।

सवाल यह उठ रहे हैं कि नेहरू के जमाने से जो 31% भारी-भरकम टैक्स लगाए गए, आखिर उसे कम क्यों नहीं किया गया। अब राहुल गांधी से ये सवाल पूछे जाने चाहिए कि आखिर उन्होंने 10 साल के यूपीए शासन के दौरान नेहरू टैक्स को खत्म करने की कोशिश क्यों नहीं की।

सबकी जानकारी के लिए PERFORM INDIA इन सभी 178 वस्तुओं की सूची नीचे दे रहा है, जिन पर कांग्रेस के कई दशकों के शासन के दौरान नेहरू टैक्स वसूल किया गया।
