‘Biplab Deb Govt’s 1st Budget 2018-19 is Far from BJP’s Vision Document’ : Ex-Finance Minister Badal Choudhury
AGARTALA, June 19 (TIWN): BJP Govt’s claim about 14 % hike in budget than previous CPI-M Govt led budget of 2017-18 FY, has been slammed by CPI-M MLA Ex-Minister Badal Choudhry. The opposition's reaction came after Finance Minister Jishnu Debbarma on Tuesday had placed a budget of Rs. 16,387 crores for 2018-19 FY, with a hike of 14 % than the last financial year. After the budget was placed in Tripura Assembly Day-1, CPI-M MLA Ex-Minister Badal Choudhury said, “There was nothing in BJP Govt’s budget which can fulfill their Vision Document in next 1 year. Forget about whole Vision Document as they themselves might also don't know how many promises they made before the Election, but out of those 10 promises made in the cover page, not a single was pointed in today’s budget”. “We made budgets for years after years and what Jishnu Debbarma was trying to explain it’s quite clear to us. There was no mention about 7th pay Commission, for which state govt employees are waiting”, Badal Choudhury added.
