Government prepared for discussion on black money: BJP
New Delhi: Facing opposition flak on the issue of black money, BJP today sought to wriggle out of the situation by saying that it was ready for a discussion on it.
"We are committed and sincere to bring back black money from abroad. Government is fully prepared for a discussion on black money. We are fully prepared to present the facts on the efforts to bring back black money," Minister of State for Parliamentary Affairs Rajiv Pratap Rudy told reporters after the meeting of the BJP Parliamentary Party here.
The meeting was shifted to the Parliament House library today and saw Finance Minister Arun Jaitley speak on the GST issue even as Parliamentary Affairs Minister Venkaiah Naidu told the MPs to make this session fruitful.
Addressing the members, Jaitley said government is trying to get the GST bill in this session and get it passed by the next session.
