Union Budget betrays hopes of majority people, says iGP


Press Statement  

Unchir-Dunktok, Pauri Garhwal, Uttarakhand, 1 February 2023: The India Greens Party (iGP) today said the Union Budget is a heartless Budget that has betrayed the hopes of the most people and lacks the vision for the employment sector.

The Union Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman presented the Union Budget today in Parliament. She made several announcements for different areas in view of the upcoming Assembly polls in three-four states.

At a time when the country’s unemployment rate hovers at more than 7 percent, the Union Budget appears to lack the foresight for meeting the employment of a phenomenally growing Indian workforce, said a press statement issued here at the national head office (NHO) of the party.

It said there is nothing in the Budget for poor people and to control inflation. Also, there is no mention of urban employment and farmers who were expecting a raised loan limit. There was no announcement for subsidies on the farming tools or fertilisers either.

In brief, the Budget has no vision to create jobs. There is no plan to tackle inflation, and no intent to reduce inequality. It does not spell any roadmap for the country’s future either.

In her budget speech, the Finance Minister proudly announced huge incentives for green hydrogen, 50 new airports and heliports, coastal shipping, horticulture, grain storage; but the quiz question is: Which politically powerful business group has plans to dominate these very sectors?
