CPI national secretary Dr K Narayana has alleged that Union Finance Minister Arun Jaitly’s budget has failed in all aspects.
Speaking to the media here on Thursday, Narayana criticised Jaitly by saying that the latter passed time by telling Harikatha during his budget speech. On the other hand, those possessing black money had converted it into white after demonetization of big notes, he said. He said Prime Minister Narendra Modi would remain as an “invalid note” with the demonetization of big notes.
The budget was a mix of ‘dishonesty, fraud and conspiracy’, he alleged and said nothing would happen with the budget though the people expected a lot from it. The people remained silent after the budget though they thought that the elephant was coming to do something, he pointed out. He also said the next budget would be an election budget and nothing will be there in it. He alleged that the NDA government was passing time and doing nothing to the country. (NSS)
