Leader of the Opposition Ram Govind Choudhury, who had moved a notice demanding to send the Bill to the select committee of the house, later withdrew his notice on the request of Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath.
The Chief Minister, who tabled the Bill yesterday, starting the debate, sought the cooperation and support of all the members for the Bill.
"When all the non-BJP ruled states have passed the GST Bill then, if SP try to oppose it will give a different message in the country," Mr Adityanath said.
Claiming that GST, which is the biggest ever tax reform in India after Independence, will give a new slogan of one nation, one tax regime which will benefit the common people most, he said.
