Chhattisgarh chief minister Bhupesh Baghel took to twitter describing interim union budget as a “Jumla bullet express”–a repeat of Jumla express before the 2014 lok sabha polls.
“One lakh digital villages in next five years? First talk about how many smart cities were made in last five years and what about generating two crore employment for jobless people?”, Baghel asked demanded Modi government must first explain what they did to fulfil the promises made in 2014.
Hours after Union minister Piyush Goyal announced Union budget in New Delhi, Bhupesh Baghel tweeted, “After 2014 Jumla-Express, its 2019 Jumla-bullet-Express. Desh ke har varg ki hawa udi hui hai aur Modi sarkar ‘Uri’ pe atki hui hai, (While all sections of society is suffering in this country, Modi government’s all attention is on Uri movie). What happened to the Rs 15 lakh promise which was supposed to be credited in accounts of citizens?”, he asked.
In the two tweets chief minister also asked why wasn’t the Swaminathan report in favour of farmers released and implemented yet? According to a report of NSSO, the unemployment status in country is the highest in last 45 years.
Calling it an attempt of “self-goal”, Congress leader Shailesh Nitin Trivedi said that Modi’s budget didn’t have anything in favour of middle-class section and the steps taken for villages do not seem to be effective.
