Congratulations FM @NSitharaman ji for delivering a #BudgetForNewIndia It perfectly encapsulates PM @NarendraModi ji’s vision of New India and will lead to investment, growth & economic development leading to welfare of farmers, poor & middle class of the country. Railways infrastructure will need an investment of ₹50 Lakh Cr between 2018-2030, given that capital expenditure outlay of Railways is around ₹1.5-1.6 Lakh Cr per annum A public-private partnership is proposed to unleash faster development of Railways Connectivity is the life-blood of our economy. The Government has given a massive push to all forms of physical connectivity The dedicated freight corridors would mitigate the congestion of Railway network, benefitting the common man: FM @NSitharaman ji Indian Railways does a phenomenal job in cities & will be encouraged to invest more in Suburban Railways Govt to encourage more Public-Private Partnership for transit-oriented development & dedicated freight corridor project will free up existing rail network.

Mamata Banerjee, Honourable Chief Minister, West Bengal.

#Budget2019 is completely visionless. In fact, the total vision is derailed. On top of it, not only have they imposed cess but also special additional excise duty on petrol and diesel leading to price increase by nearly Rs 2.50/litre for petrol and Rs 2.30/litre for diesel As a result, price hikes will hit from transport to market to kitchens. Commoners are suffering and suffering… This is Election Prize!!

Mamata Banerjee, Honourable Chief Minister, West Bengal.

An utterly lacklustre, nondescript, uninspiring & directionless #Budget2019. Zero on Economic Revival. Zero on Rural Growth. Zero on Job Creation. Zero on Urban Rejuvenation. Can a mundane jugglery of ‘acronyms’ pass off for vision for a ‘New India’?
