The Congress said on Wednesday that if its concerns on multiple rates and exclusions in the GST legislation were not addressed, it would oppose it in Parliament.

“If the government ignores our concerns or exceeds the reasonable limits of taxation, it may face problems when the Bill comes up in Parliament,” he said.
