News Desk: Criticising the Union Budget, West Bengal chief minister Mamata Banerjee on Tuesday tweeted “Budget has zero for common people, who are getting crushed by unemployment & inflation. Govt is lost in big words signifying nothing – a Pegasus spin budget”.
Reacting to her tweet, BJP National Vice President Dilip Ghosh said
“Mamata Banerjee runs a five rupee government, what does she know about the budget? She takes loans from the Central government and distributes them among people without responsibility. She would not understand the budget, her budget is made hurriedly walking on the treadmill.
If you want jobs, go to Gujarat. If you want to study go to Karnataka. Go to Chennai for treatment. In West Bengal, people are sent to jails for demanding their own salary.
The work that Prime Minister Narendra Modi has done in the past seven years, the Budget has taken that forward. It will empower the poor, and make them self-reliant. It will boost the infrastructure, create job opportunities.
The things of importance like roads and railways have been given priority. If there is a push on the infrastructure, there will be job creation leading to an increase in the earnings of the people. But the people who ask for money sitting at home will definitely be a little disappointed with this budget.”
