The people are already suffering from the hike in prices of diesel, petrol and domestic gas cylinder. Adding to their woes further, the union government has indiscriminately increased GST taxes on household commodities. The fresh hike in GST tax on cremation is one of the worst decisions by Modi government,” Gutha Sukender Reddy said.

He demanded that the union government rollback the decision of increasing GST taxes on household commodities and protect the rights of States. (Hydnow)
