“He should naturally talk to the Opposition. But the talks which are happening with the Congress President andManmohan Singh ji is due to public pressure. This is not the normal way of transacting business,” Gandhi told reporters outside Parliament House.

With government and Congress at loggerheads over the passage of crucial legislations like the Goods and Services Tax (GST) Bill, Modi reached out to the main opposition and invited Sonia Gandhi and Singh for tea this evening at his Race Course Road residence at 7 PM.

Rahul also maintained that the party was in favour of passage of GST bill but made it clear that there were differences with the government regarding the issue.

“Our position is very clear and we have three differences with the BJP government. So the talks are on.

“We had brought in the GST and it is beneficial for the people. We want to pass the GST and cooperate with the government,” Rahul added.

Congress wants that cap should be put on the tax, he said, adding,” We want poor should not be taxed. We have brought in the GST and we want to pass it.”
