Gandhi came down heavily on the hurried implementation of GST.

He, however, conceded that the erstwhile Congress-led UPA government too did not extend enough support to industries in Surat. Explaining this further and linking it to the "blow" dealt by demonetisation, Mr Gandhi wrote: "For India, the real force capable of meeting the Chinese job challenge is our huge network of micro, small and medium businesses".
