Finance Minister ended with quote from Swami Vivekanand but his budget was just opposed to what Vivekanand wanted India to become ......
The All India Trade Union Congress (AITUC) General Secretary Amarjeet Kaur said the NDA government budget has failed to address the concerns of common man, unemployed and vulnerable sections.
She said the budget presented by Finance Minister was more of a jugglery of words, manipulation of statistics and deceitful way of putting things to sell dreams once again without backing of concrete steps and actions needed to implement the statement of intent made.
She also said the Finance Minister ended with quote from Swami Vivekanand but his budget was just opposed to what Vivekanand wanted India to become as he wanted India to become a powerful nation of working people to fulfill their aspirations, and attain a life of dignity.
The budget, she said, once again gives huge concessions to corporates and big businesses including on focus to foreign investments, and continued disinvestments of public sector units to the tune of Rs 80,000 crore in the coming year.
She was of the view that the government wants to be satisfied with certificate from International Monetary Fund for the growth estimates, as it once again appeared to be committed to tag Indias economy with international finance capital. PTI KKS BJ
