Shah, who is on a two-day visit to the coastal state, was accorded a warm welcome outside the airport where he addressed party workers.

"I don't deny that there may not be teething problem with the implementation of GST in the beginning, however, I want to assure the people that the new tax reform will fasten the economic growth of the country and will end several tax related legislations", he said.

The GST was formally launched in Delhi in a midnight function in Parliament. "GST reform will accelerate the economic growth of the country making it a global leader", he said. Since the time Modiji has taken over, he has been introducing new things in every sector.

"GST will benefit businessmen, traders, small-scale entrepreneurs and others which would ultimately help to eradicate "Inspector Raj" which exists since Independence", claimed Shah.

The blaze that began Saturday is in the area where 19 elite firefighters died four years ago battling another wildfire. Dozens of homes were under mandatory evacuation orders on the suburban edges of Burbank, where flames raced uphill.


Mr Shah said a BJP worker explained the reason behind this to him.

In his five minute speech, Shah said "the country has achieved a dream of one country, one tax under the leadership of President of India Pranab Mukherjee and Prime Minister Narendra Modi".

To draw up a strategy for the 2019 general elections, BJP chief Amit Shah arrived in Goa on Saturday on a two-day visit where he is scheduled to meet senior party officials.
