Activists are up in arms after essentials for people with disabilities like hearing aids, braille books and wheelchairs will be taxed between five and 18 per cent under the new GST regime. Why tax disability, they say, when the government talks so much about inclusion? Now Rahul Gandhi has added his voice to those protests, tweeting that his Congress demands a full roll back of what amounts to a 'disability tax' that will put millions of differently-abled Indians through further hardship.
