Union Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman, on Saturday, paid homage to her predecessor, late Arun Jaitely, terming him as the architect of the Goods and Services Tax. "Of the structural reforms, GST has been the most historic in our country. Its chief architect is not with us today. I pay homage to the visionary leader late Arun Jaitely," Sitharamn said. "At the time of the rollout of the GST, he had said - It will be an India where the Centre and States will work harmoniously towards the common goal of shared prosperity. The unanimity of the constitutional amendment and the consensus of the GST council highlights that India can rise above narrow politics for the nation's interest," she recalled the former Finance Minister as saying.
