New Delhi: Union finance minister Arun Jaitley on Thursday said the Centre remains committed to Goods and Services Tax (GST) as any other government reform.

“It (GST) is the single most important tax reform in 70 years,” Jaitley said. “I hope every political party will revisit its decision and support the launch.”

A few political parties, including the Trinamool Congress, are not participating in the GST launch event in the Parliament on Friday. The GST rollout will take place at the stroke of midnight on 1 July.

“Political parties must display broad shoulder and own up responsibility,” the finance minister added.
