PRIME Minister Narendra Modi on Friday said the interim Budget touches all sections of the society and includes everyone, asserting that it is a merely a “trailer” of what will guide India towards prosperity after the Lok Sabha elections.

In his remarks after the interim Budget was presented in Parliament, Modi said it empowers people and referred to a host of budgetary announcements and schemes to drive home his point. More than 12 crore farmers, three crore middle class families and 30-40 crore workers employed in unorganised sector will benefit from the Budget, he said, adding that poverty has been falling at a record rate due to the efforts of his Government.

This Budget will boost the efforts of 130 crore citizens in realising the goal of a new India, Modi said.
