Madhya Pradesh Assembly ratifies GST Bill
25 August 2016 Current Affairs: Madhya Pradesh Assembly has unanimously ratified 122nd Constitution Amendment Bill on Goods and Service Tax (GST), the seventh state to do so, with Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan terming it as a process towards economic integration of the country. 

The day-long session was called and the GST Bill was unanimously ratified by the members with a voice vote after a discussion. 

Earlier, the bill was tabled by Law and Legislative Affairs Minister Rampal Singh for ratification by the House following which Congress' acting Leader of Opposition raised the demand for discussion on alleged Simhastha scam and the grim flood situation in the state. 

However, the Speaker turned down their demand on the ground that the purpose of the day-long session was only to ratify the Constitution Amendment Bill on GST. 

Madhya Pradesh is the seventh state to ratify 122nd Constitution Amendment Bill, Mallaiya later told reporters.
