New Delhi, Aug 9 (ANI): The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) on Tuesday dubbed the passage of Goods and Services Tax (GST) as a historic decision and said that this will help the nation grow.

Speaking to ANI here, BJP leader Rajiv Ranjan said that that the GST is a revolutionary decision taken post Independence.

"GST is a historic decision. Post independence this is a revolutionary decision taken to transform the tax system of the nation," said Ranjan.
