ACM Tipnis advocates breaking up of Pakistan and all round weakening of Pakistan in all spheres as the only long term strategy that would help

He says Pakistan is only interested in breaking up India and will not stop even if we give them Kashmir

GST is supposed to subsume all the previous indirect taxes into one tax. It is not possible to have one single rate in India ( like say Singapore , where there is a single rate of 7% ).
