NEW DELHI: Congress Vice President Rahul Gandhi on Sunday urged the Central government to bring fuel items under GST in order to check inflation, while keeping them under the 18 per cent slab at the maximum.

"It is country's voice. Government should stop giving excuses. GST on basic amenities used by ordinary people should be removed," Gandhi tweeted.

"To reduce the burden of inflation, they should bring petrol, diesel and gas cylinder under GST. Fix one rate for GST which would be the least possible and should not be more than 18 per cent at any cost," he added.

Claiming victory for reduction of GST rates on more than 200 items, Gandhi on Saturday said his party will continue the fight for capping the tax at 18 per cent and promised the Congress will do it if the Bharatiya Janata Party government fails.

On Friday, the GST Council slashed tax rates on 178 goods from 28 per cent to 18 per cent and reduced the rates on several other items.
