Budget for emerging Bharat
Prime Minister Narendra Modi's 2.0 maiden Budget is a product of dream merchants.
Prime Minister Narendra Modi's 2.0 maiden Budget is a product of dream merchants. Peddling a $5 trillion economy dream by 2024, Union Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman tried to cram next 10 years into five years and said it reflected 'akaanksha' of the emerging Bharat.
The current size of our economy is pegged at $2.8 trillion and a target of $5 trillion means doubling the same, almost rather. This would be possible only if the GDP stays above 8 per cent each coming years, for the next five years at least.
As for the Telugus, the intent of the BJP leadership is very clear. It is not in any mood to contribute to the development of either AP or Telangana. Look at the allocations to educational institutions promised in the AP Reorganisation Act 2014.
AP Central University was given Rs 13 crore and AP Tribal University
was allocated Rs 8 crore. IIIT, Hyderabad was allocated Rs 80 crore. "Ye desh ko samridh aur jan jan ko samarth banane wala budget hai.
Is budget se gareeb ko bal milega. Yuva ko behtar kal milega.
(This is a budget that will make the country prosperous and every citizen capable. This budget will provide strength to the poor, and a better tomorrow to the youth)," Modi said.
