Kaushik welcomed the earmarking of Rs 75,000 crore for Kisaan Samman Niddhi and said that by doing so the NDA government under PM Modi has fixed a minimum income for the small and marginal farmers.

On the other by hiking the income-tax rebate limit to Rs 5 lakh has given a huge relief for families from middle income group. This will provide huge financial relief to farmers, small and mediocre businessmen as well. The outlay of Rs 64,587 crore for Railways is a welcome move as it has been aimed at ensuring safe, timely and comfortable rail journey for all.

Kaushik said that the Finance Minister has been able to keep the fiscal deficit below 3.4 per cent which is worth commendation. By keeping the inflation rate at 4 per cent approximately despite hike in fuel prices is also a great job. Giving air connectivity to Arunachal Pradesh and Sikkim and rail connectivity to Meghalaya, Tripura and Mizoram states development has finally reached North-Eastern states after so many years since Independence.

BJP National General Secretary Saroj Pandey while welcoming the Union Budget proposals said that this budget has opened avenues for organised and unorganised sectors. By announcing new pension scheme and social security pension the NDA government has shown sensitiveness. She also welcomed the allocation of Rs 35,000 crore to meet the expenses of ‘One Rank, One Pension’ for the Armed Forces and increasing bonus amount from Rs 3,500 to Rs 7,000. She hailed the Sharmyogi Maandhan Mega Pension Scheme where a provision of Rs 3,000 per month pension has been made for labourers attaining the age of 60 years, which would benefit over 10 crore people. 

BJP SC Cell National President Ramvichar Netam in his reaction said that by making an outlay of Rs 76,800 crore for SC/ST schemes, the PM Modi led NDA government has realised the dream of ‘Sabka Sath Sabka Vikas’. By hiking budgetary allocations by 36 percent for Scheduled Caste and by 28 percent for Scheduled Tribe, PM Modi has realised the dream of all-inclusive development.

BJP Mahila Morcha State President Puja Vidhani in her statement termed the Union Budget as the outcome of sensitive leadership. She said that by increasing the honorarium of Asha and Anganbadi workers by 50 per cent, the PM Modi led government has signaled that it wants to strengthen the women power. Also by nearing completion of 8 crore LPG connections under Ujjawala scheme, the NDA government has provided great relief to women. Under the Matri Vandana Yojna the government has augmented the honour of mother and women power. By making an outlay of Rs 27,587 crore for child development the government has protected the future of this country.

BJYM President Vijay Sharma and General Secretary Sanju Narayan Singh while welcoming the budget stated that the NDA government led by PM Modi has prepared an extensive mega target for infrastructure development ‘Vision 2030’, implementation of projects under this initiative will open employment opportunities for the youth. In the vision for 10 years, the targeted development will be carried out so that it ensures social progress at the same time ensure ease of living.

‘No effective measures taken for rural people’

Reacting over the Central Government’s interim Budget presented by acting Finance Minister Piyush Goyal, Chhattisgarh Congress said that BJP Government’s interim budget is miles away from realities and no effective measures have been taken in the Budget to resolve the grievances of the people from rural India.

CPCC’s Communication Department Chairman Shailesh Nitin Trivedi said that the Modi government in its budget conceded that there are grievances of the rural people in the country but no effective measures have been taken in the Budget to redress their problems.

No special provision has been made in the interim budget for the middle class. Modi government failed to generate two crore employments every year in the last five years, Trivedi said. The National Democratic Alliance (NDA) government did nothing for traders, housewives, middle class and youths and they are disappointed by the budget.

The Modi government seems to have made fake promises in the budget. The budget does not demonstrate a clear policy for promotion of industry and trade, he added. Trivedi said that the Modi government failed to bring back black money into the country and to deposit Rs 15 lakh in the bank account of the individuals as he had promised prior to the general election.
