WORLD EYES INDIA’S BUDGET!
New Delhi: President Droupadi Murmu said India has a “fearless, decisive govt today” as she addressed parl on 1st day of Budget session on Tuesday. “India is today emerging as a provider of solutions for issues faced by the world. My govt is clear — corruption is biggest enemy of democracy and social justice. Action has been taken to end corruption,” she said
Opposition parties on Tuesday criticised the President’s address alleging that the speech was like the “first chapter” of the ruling BJP’s manifesto for 2024 and key issues related to price control, communal harmony and women were “missing”. Congress chief Mallikarjun Kharge said it is the “government’s statement that has come through the President” and there is nothing new in it. “If the govt is claiming that the country has progressed so much, then why do the poor people of the country continue to suffer due to unemployment and high inflation,” the Congress president said. TMC Rajya Sabha MP Derek O’Brien said that while it is “convention” that the President’s address is “written” by the government of India, key issues were absent in her speech. “As is convention, President’s Address to both Houses of #Parliament is written by GoI. Any line in speech about controlling prices, creating jobs, strengthening (fiscal) federalism, promoting communal harmony, passing Women s Reservation Bill? Oh and 2 miserly lines about the North East,” said Brien.
