The day when Payoneer organized a session on GST in my office, I received a write up that was full of frustration on how GST is torturing people's lives.
Recently, Indore based engineer Nitesh Gupta wrote an open letter to PM Narendra Modi where he listed out 12 questions/queries and expected that he would receive answers to all of them. Here you see the copy of his letter to PMO.
MODI JI – ENOUGH IS ENOUGH
GST – BIGGEST TORTURE FOR HONEST TAXPAYER
Respected Mr. Prime Minister,
Government of India.
Generally, I do not start my letter with negative frame of mind. But, after requesting you by writing letter through different forum, today I cannot control myself. All my anger is accumulated in this email.
Till today, I use to mention you as MODI JI (a person, I could connect). But experiencing your dictatorship for last 1 year (on GST Issue), I am forced to disconnect myself and mention you as Mr. Prime Minister (Dictator). In your speeches, you have termed yourself as "PRADHAN SEVAK". But you are acting as Dictator, not SEVAK.
Please find your valuable time to read my following points and answer my question.
As a citizen of India, I need answer to all question mentioned above. When I send you letters via different forum, I doubt, you read any letter. I hope and pray god, this letter reach you and finally, you read this letter, as a citizen of INDIA.
We need a PRADHAN SEVAK "Narendra Modi", not DICTATOR "Narendra Modi".

When Nitesh shared the open letter on his Facebook, dozens of comments appeared in his support.
Nitesh has got this letter published on taxguru.in as well. While sharing his opinion about it, he stated: ''GST failure will be the biggest failure of Indian economy. Mind me, Indian economy is much greater than one person or one party or one government."
While PM Modi ji is taking pride in his decision by saying GST launch is one of the biggest fiscal reforms in the country, Congress leaders are saying "GST is good for Modi ji but bad for people."
Anyway, we wish Modi ji all the very best for his tenure. May India rise again!
