New Delhi: To protest against GST and fall in economy the women wing of the Delhi Pradesh Congress Committee, women’s wing, has decided to burn the effigies of GST in all 70 assembly seats of Delhi.

The women’s wing is all set to kickstart the protest by burning the effigy of Goods and Services Tax (GST) in Sadar Bazaar’s Barah Tuti Chowk. A delegation of women’s wing also met with the local traders’ association of Sadar Bazaar and spoke to them regarding their protest.

The traders have reportedly agreed to help them and participate in the protest. Sai Anamika, the acting president of women wing said that instead of burning effigy of central government they decide to burn their move such as GST, which led to fall the economy.

“The GST had made the country’s business suffer. Traders told us that because of the GST they were facing a lot of trouble in running their business firm and their business was suffering,” said Anamika.  

Ms Anamika said that support of local businessmen, traders show that everyone is fed up with GST and it should be revoked.

The women’s wing has tightened its socks to make the protest a successful. They are trying to gain the support of local traders. The women’s wing will stage as many as six protests daily in different areas.

"Our protest will go on for over a week as we have to cover 70 Assembly segments. We will burn three effigies in each constituency,” she said.
