Congress vice president Rahul Gandhi on Tuesday said he was satisfied over the government's decision to roll back the tax on Employees Provident Fund (EPF) as proposed in the 2016-17 general budget.

"Finally, the government was forced to listen to the people and roll back the patently unfair tax on EPF. But the attempt to tax the safety net of millions of hard-working middle class ppl was morally wrong and shows this govt's anti-ppl mindset," Gandhi tweeted on his official Twitter account.

"I felt the middle-class people were being hurt by the government; so, I decided to put some pressure on the government," he later told media persons.
