Uttar Pradesh, June 30: Uttar Pradesh remains top in all the headlines whether it’s criminal cases, loot cases or anything but this time a Saffron party leader stole the limelight, where the minister do not have even knowledge of its government’s major move.
Showing the reality of politics behind the curtains, State Minister Rampati Shastri failed to spell out the full form of GST (Goods and Services Tax) which is the major move of the Central government.
The bizarre incident was captured when Social Welfare, Scheduled Castes and Tribal Affairs Minister Shashtri was interacting with local businessmen in Maharajganj to apprise them of the benefits of GST Bill.
As per the reports of PTI, someone from the background tried to hint the minister but he failed to recognise the clue. After realising his mistake, the minister said that he knew the full form but was not able to recollect it instantly.
“I know the full form. I am going through all the relevant documents to gather more knowledge about the GST,” Shashtri told media.
This incident came to light barely a day after Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) MP Meenakshi Lekhi failed to spell Swachch Bharat in Hindi. Lekhi, during an event in New Delhi by Indraprastha Gas Limited.
She wrote ‘सवच्छ भारत, सवस्थ भारत’ instead of ‘स्वच्छ भारत, स्वस्थ भारत’. Later admitting her mistake, Meenakshi Lekhi reportedly said that she would not repeat it in future.
In a tweet, which was later deleted from her Twitter account, Meenakshi Lekhi had reportedly wrote: Aapka nazariya hai, hindi ८ class ke baad padhi nahi hai phir bhi koshish karti rehti hu seekhne ki autocorrect ka samay hai shukriya aage se ye galti nahi hogi (This is your outlook, I didn’t study Hindi after Class 8 still I am trying to learn. This is the time of autocorrect. Thank you. Will not repeat this mistake in future).
