New Delhi [India], June 21(ANI): The Congress Party on Wednesday cornered veteran actor Amitabh Bachchan for advertising the NDA Government's Goods and Services Tax (GST), saying the latter should not promote the Bharatiya Janata Party's (BJP's) 'stupid act'. "Amitabh Bachchan is a very respectful person, but it is not important that he becomes a part of every stupid act of the BJP," Congress leader Sanjay Nirupam told ANI. He further said the veteran actor might face the brunt of the protest against the GST which may affect his image in the long term. "Businessmen are already infuriated about the introduction of the GST and are also planning to stage protests against it. The government is not ready to listen to the businessmen. There will be protests against it and also against Bachchan for being the brand ambassador of GST. So, he should not promote GST," Nirupam said. Taking to Twitter, Nirupam advised Bachchan to withdraw his name as GST brand ambassador.
