Minister KTR Lashes Out at Centre

Minister | Hyderabad: Industries Minister KT Rama Rao lashed out at the Centre’s double standards in levying GST on the common people, even for milk and curd, and exempting corporate giants like the Adani Group, the latest instance being the transfer of the Jaipur International Airport to the company.

In October 2021, Adani Group had taken over the operations, management, and development of the Jaipur International Airport from the Airports Authority of India (AAI). The airport has been leased out to the group by the Union government for 50 years. The transfer of Jaipur international airport operations by AAI to the Adani group is exempt from Goods and Services Tax (GST), the Authority for Advance Ruling (AAR) said.

Reacting sharply to the GST exemption for Adani Group, the Minister tweeted: “Ordinary Indians have to pay GST even on milk or curd… But extraordinary Indians like Adani, no GST even when you get an airport on a platter with tailor-made policies thanks to PRadani,” (sic) he tweeted.

The Minister also slammed the BJP for its opportunistic politics over its stand on freebies. Referring to the GST exemption for Adani Group, Rama Rao tweeted: “And this ain’t ready or freebie. It’s just “A Mitr Kaal”
