With Budget 2014 being out, the opposition parties are busy expressing their views about it. Here are the comments of leaders of several political parties.
The budget does not reflect the aspirations of common man. Most of the programs announced are connected to other ministries - Congress leader Veerappa Moily
Budget lacks vision. No clear measures to improve revenue deficit and policy direction - Shashi Tharoor
The Budget is seriously disappointing. It is words budget, no real measures taken – Nationalist Congress Party Chief Sharad Pawar.
This Budget is visionless, missionless and actionless. This government is “of FDI, by the FDI and for the FDI.” - West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee.
This Budget is for the Corporates. There is no increase in allocations for rural and social sectors – CPI D. Raja.
Its a rich capitalists budget not pro-poor – Samajwadi Party General Secretary Ram Gopal Yadav.
