Narendra Modi Walked Off The Stage To Darth Vader's "Imperial March" After A Speech About GST

Does he find people's lack of faith in GST disturbing?

Posted on

Earlier this evening, PM Modi addressed the Institute of Chartered Accountants of India in New Delhi to talk about the Goods and Services Tax (GST) just implemented by the government.

The overhaul of India's tax system hasn't been met with unanimous approval, to say the least, as many doubts have been expressed over its effect on the economy.

This isn't the first time PM Modi and Star Wars have collided to make pop culture khichdi. In 2014, he quoted the franchise's most popular line in an iconic speech at Madison Square Garden.
