Budget 2021-22: Rahul Gandhi Takes A Direct Dig, Calls It Budget Of The 1% Population
Rahul Gandhi recently shared his stern opinion on the Union Budget and where the government went wrong. Have a look at all the details on his take.
Finance Minister Nirmala Sitaraman’s Union Budget 2021-22 has been inviting mixed reactions from experts, citizens, and opposition leaders. Member of Parliament, Rahul Gandhi recently commented on the Budget and how it will have an adverse effect on the working class and the MSMEs. He criticised the government and stood on the stance that if the government had focused on consumption, rather than production then the economy could have been picked up in a shorter period of time. The newly-drafted budget gives special attention to infrastructural development in states like West Bengal, Assam, Tamil Nadu, and Kerala, where the state elections are just around the corner. The move has invited flak from the people while they have also been worried about the heavy borrowing planned for this year. The government has also introduced a vehicle scrapping policy to push-fit vehicles and reduce pollution while the policy is expected to be issued in the next few days.
Here is a look at the ZEE5 video with details related to Rahul Gandhi’s take on the Union Budget 2021-22:
Indian politician Rahul Gandhi recently took a direct dig at the government for neglecting the working class and MSMEs in Budget 2021-22. He said, “I had an expectation from the budget that the government will support 99% people. This budget is a budget for just 1% of the overall population. They have taken money away from the small and medium industries, workers, farmers, and forces and have put the funds in the pockets of the same 5-10 people. You are talking about Privatisation? That benefit will also go to them.”
Rahul Gandhi also threw some light on how the economy could have been picked up and where the government went wrong with its policies. He said, “What did India need? India had to put money in the hands of its citizens. Why? Because if we wish to bring a change in the current declining economic condition, then it will only happen through consumption. That cannot happen through the supply side. So if the government had brought in something like ‘Nyay Yojana’ and had given money to the small and medium industries to keep them protected then we could have started the economy again.”
