State Finance Minister Sudhir Mungantiwar arrived at Matoshree to meet Shiv Sena chief, Uddhav Thackeray. It is speculated that GST bill is the topic of discussion in the meeting. Mungantiwar is all geared up for the GST bill that will be tabled for passage in a special session in the Assembly from 20 May – 22 May. Uddhav Thackeray has made it very clear that Sena will oppose GST if it threatens BMC’s financial autonomy.
Sena is worried that BJP may use the bill as a ploy to keep a check on the modus operandi of Sena in the BMC. Sudhir Mungantiwar will give a presentation on the GST bill.
