Congress calls Budget directionless, regressive & inflationary

Thursday, 02 February 2023 | PNS | DEHRADUN

The Pradesh Congress Committee (PCC) Karan Maharaj has termed the Union Budget presented by finance minister Nirmala Sitharaman on Wednesday as directionless, regressive, anti development and inflationary. He said that the budget would render a blow to the economic development of the nation. Mahara added that the budget document lacks the financial management and the finance minister has engaged in juggling of the data in the budget. The PCC president said that the budget would increase the burden on the general public and the provisions made in the budget would ensure that the economic growth would not touch the double digit mark. He said that the Modi government talks about doubling the income of farmers but no provision is made in the budget for this. The PCC president said that a total of 7.50 crore people have become unemployed in the agriculture, industrial and real estate sectors and the rural unemployment has increased after the pandemic of Covid-19. He said that the government only talks about creating new employment opportunities but no provision for the same is made by the finance minister in the budget. Terming the budget as capitalist friendly Mahara said that there is nothing for rural employment and poor in it. The PCC president said that Uttarakhand has been left empty handed in the union budget. He said that despite being a State sensitive to natural disasters no provision has been made in the budget for the State. Mahara said that no measure has been taken in the Union budget for increasing the road and air connectivity in the State.

In his reaction the Vice President of Uttarakhand Congress, Dhirendra Pratap said that the budget has shattered the hopes of the people and there is nothing for women and the farmers in it. He added that Uttarakhand has been completely ignored in the budget.
