Union Budget to strengthen Uttarakhand’s economy: BJP

Thursday, 02 February 2023 | PNS | DEHRADUN

The State president of the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) Mahendra Bhatt said that Uttarakhand's economy will be strengthened by the decision of a separate provision for tourism and development of border areas of the Himalayan region as stated by the finance minister in the Union Budget presented on Wednesday. He stated that the announcement of working in a mission mode to promote tourism will also provide more employment opportunities to youths of the State. He said that extension of Pradhan Mantri Garib Kalyan Yojana by one year would benefit more than 60 lakh people of the State who would get free ration under the scheme. He said that products of mountainous areas like Mandwa and Chaulai are also expected to get more exposure in bigger markets under the Shri Anna Yojana which is meant to make the country a hub of millets and has the potential to be a game changer for the millets grown in Uttarakhand. Forming an agricultural fund to encourage agricultural start-ups by the young entrepreneurs will also benefit people here, stated Bhatt. He said that the announcement of tax slabs and increase in income tax exemption have brought a smile on the face of the middle class families of the State. He described the budget as the resolution of Prime Minister Narendra Modi's self-reliant India.  All announcements made by the finance minister are done considering the interests of each section of the society and their execution would certainly speed up the pace of development in the State as well as across the country, added Bhatt.
