Kolkata: West Bengal chief minister Mamata Banerjee on Thursday raked up the issues of demonetisation and the Goods and Services Tax (GST), dubbing the note ban as the “biggest disaster” and the new tax regime a “great stunt”.

“As I had said earlier, demonetisation is the biggest disaster. It has completely ruined the country’s economy. Also, the GST is a great stunt,” Ms Banerjee wrote on her Twitter handle.

The chief minister had earlier called the GST roll-out as another “epic blunder” of the Centre after the demonetisation. Claiming that the government had "hurriedly" introduced the GST, Ms Banerjee demanded an investigation into the new tax regime.

“Why the government started it hurriedly wit-hout making proper plans? The commoners and all traders are the worst sufferers because of it. There should be a Thorough investigation into it, Ms Banerjee said.
