Reduction in health & education budgets alarming: Arya

Thursday, 02 February 2023 | PNS | DEHRADUN

The leader of opposition (LoP) in Uttarakhand assembly Yaspal Arya has criticised the Narendra Modi government for reducing allocation of the health and education sectors in the Union Budget presented on Wednesday. He said that the education budget has been reduced from 2.64 per cent to 2.5 per cent while the health budget has been cut from 2.2 per cent to 1.8 per cent.  Arya claimed that there is nothing in the budget to tackle increasing unemployment, plight of farmers and stop rising prices. He said that the budgetary allocation for agriculture, public health, education, MNREGA, food security, social responsibilities and public welfare have been reduced this year as compared to the previous years which has rung alarm bells for the poor, farmers, labourers, Dalits and tribes. Arya said that the Union budget would prove to be inflationary and would result in increase in unemployment and poverty.
