Rahul Gandhi: Why tax products for physically handicapped people?

There seems to be major discontentment with the tax slabs fixed on products used by physically and visually impaired people following the Goods and Services Tax (GST) regime.Congress Vice President Rahul Gandhi raised the issue and demanded a complete rollback of taxes on such products.
Through a series of tweets, Amethi MP said, “GST on disability aids (products) like wheelchairs and Braille typewriters, once again shows this Govt’s complete insensitivity towards our most vulnerable. Congress Party demands a full roll back of this ‘disability tax’ that will put millions of our disabled people through further hardship.”
