P Chidambaram, Former Finance Minister :
- Congratulations to the finance ministers of Punjab, Chhattisgarh, Kerala, West Bengal, Telangana and Delhi for rejecting the bogus twin options given by the central government to bridge the GST Compensation gap.
- As far as I know, Rajasthan and Puducherry have also rejected the two options, Happy that Tamil Nadu has also rejected the two options.
- The States must not allow the Centre to evade its legal and moral responsibility to compensate the States for the revenue shortfall. The financial burden of additional borrowing must be borne by the Centre
