Chandigarh, July 28

A Twitter war broke out between Union Minister Harsimrat Kaur Badal and her estranged brother-in-law and state Finance Minister Manpreet Singh Badal over the release of GST compensation to Punjab.

It began with Harsimrat posting a tweet saying that the Centre had cleared the pending GST compensation of Rs 12,187 crore for 2019-20, and she hoped that the state government would use this to streamline the state's fiscal situation and ensure timely payment to employees.

Manpreet replied that the dues for April to July 2020 were still pending. "Four months of GST dues are equivalent to two months of salaries of government employees. Please ask your alliance partners to stop misleading and release what is due, not just to Punjab, but to all states," he tweeted.—TNS
