“EPF is the safety net of the 6.5 crore employees and imposing a tax on this is wrong. I will urge the Prime Minister to announce… that the tax will be rolled back,” Gandhi said.
Taking a jibe again at the Government’s proposed amnesty scheme on black money, announced by Jaitley in the Union Budget for the next fiscal, the Congress Vice President said that the relief should be given to the employees and not to the “thieves.”
“I had said yesterday that you (Modi) have given the fair and lovely scheme to thieves. (Instead) Our voters and employees should get relief,” he added.
