Congress interim president, Sonia Gandhi held a virtual meeting with Chief Ministers on August 26. Sonia Gandhi discussed the various pitfalls in the functioning of Central Government with respect to GST compensation and National Education Policy. Sonia Gandhi said, "In the meeting of Standing Committee of Finance on 11 August, Finance Secretary, Government of India stated that the Centre is not in a position to pay mandatory GST compensation of 14% for the current year. This refusal is nothing short of betrayal on part of Modi Government" she further said, "Announcements such as those related to the National Education Policy should really worry us as it is actually a setback. Other problems of students and exams are also being dealt with uncaringly."
