New Delhi: Congress president Mallikarjun Kharge lashed out at PM Modi-led government for reportedly imposing an 18 per cent GST on Ganga river water. He termed the act as the height of loot and hypocrisy on Thursday. 

With Prime Minister Narendra Modi undertaking a day-long visit to Uttarakhand on Thursday, the Congress also asked when will he visit violence-hit Manipur.

Kharge lambasts at Centre  

"Modi ji, the importance of Mother Ganga, the provider of salvation, is very high for a common Indian from birth till the end of their life. It is good that you are in Uttarakhand today, but your government has imposed 18% GST on the holy Ganga water itself," Congress president Mallikarjun Kharge said in a post in Hindi on X.

"Not even once did you think what would be the burden on those who order Ganga water to be kept in their homes. This is the height of loot and hypocrisy of your government," he also said.
