Panaji: Leader of Opposition Pratapsinh Rane has said Congress will support ratification of GST bill in Goa Assembly but it will also have to consider the impact of new tax regime on the state.
“Congress has supported GST bill in Parliament. We will also help passage of ratification in Goa Legislative Assembly,” Rane told reporters yesterday.
“But we will have to see what would be the impact of new tax regime on Goa,” he said.
