Former Bihar deputy chief minister Sushil Kumar Modi has decided to quit his post of chairman of the empowered committee of State finance ministers on the Goods and Services Tax (GST).

“I will submit my resignation as the GST panel chief tomorrow,” he told PTI .

“I will send my resignation to the Centre tomorrow at about 10.00 a.m.,” Mr. Sushil Kumar said.

Mr. Sushil Kumar’s announcement came after Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar removed 11 BJP ministers, including Mr. Sushil Kumar, from his council of ministers following the parting of ways with NDA.

The former deputy chief minister had also held the finance portfolio in the NDA government in Bihar.

As the GST panel chief, Mr. Sushil Kumar would hold parleys with state finance ministers for implementation of the uniform tax regime.

He had assumed the post after the then GST panel chairman Asim Dasgupta’s CPI(M)-led Left Front bowed out of power in West Bengal.
