Nashik : Union Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman presented this year’s new budget in the Parliament today. But apart from mere announcements, nothing concrete has been achieved and the Center has disappointed the farmers and common people in the budget. Guardian Minister Chhagan Bhujbal has criticized the budget of the Center by calling it ‘Khoda Pahar and Nikla Rat’.
Speaking on the Union Government’s budget, he said that the presentation of the budget only seems like a game of manipulation of figures. There is only one question that what will be in the hands of the people and there is a need to give relief to the people, at least in the form of election resolution. I felt that the general public would benefit from this budget when elections are held in some states. But he said that the Center has presented the budget only by changing the figures, but the common man has got a hit. He further said that the Finance Minister says that the Center got GST of Rs 1,40,986 crore in January 2022, so why the GST of the states is not being given to them is a puzzle.
For the last 2 years, the whole country is battling Corona and 4 crore jobs were lost during Corona. But the Center has promised only 60 lakh jobs in today’s budget. This means that the government seems to be failing miserably in providing employment to the unemployed in the country. The unorganized agricultural laborers were the most affected but no special provision was made for them. No effort was made to bridge the gap between the rich and the poor created during the Corona period. In the last budget, the growth rate was up to 11 per cent, but now it is 9.2 per cent.
Many people worked in NREGA (National Rural Employment Guarantee Scheme). But there is no mention of NREGA in this budget. The budget has created a gulf for the working class and no concrete guarantee has been given by the central government. Bhujbal also said that the lack of funds to protect the country is also a matter of concern. No facility was made available for senior citizens also. He has reacted saying that there is nothing concrete in the government’s budget except to mislead the common man through his speech.
Farmers disappointed with the budget
MP Hemant Godse said that, in the budget, the central government should have paid attention to the common man, but it is not so in the budget. Farmers, unemployment and women are the three most important questions. Many citizens have become unemployed during the Corona period. They are not getting the relief they want. He said that the central government has doubled the income of farmers by 2022. But that did not happen. Doubling income does not seem to solve the problem of farmers. This has once again disappointed the farmers. An attempt has been made to give some relief to the taxpayers in the budget.
despair to the unemployed
Former MP Samir Bhujbal says that a large number of people have become unemployed in the country. It was believed that people would get employment in the budget, but there is a huge disappointment among the youth of the country due to the lack of a big provision for employment growth through the budget.
budget that looks to the future
BJP MLA Seema Hire said, the budget presented by Union Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman today is building a truly self-reliant and strong India. It is an inclusive budget which covers all the constituents of the country. This budget can also be called the budget to take the country towards development.
No relief for housewives!
Nashik’s housewife Vasudha Fuldevre says that there is a woman finance minister at the center, but women have not been given much attention in the budget. Rising inflation is affecting the common man. Women have to chew gram to manage the household. Inflation is unlikely to come down in the budget. It is not decided when the price of gas cylinder will come down. That is why it has to be said that the Union Finance Minister did not pay attention to women in presenting the budget.
proud of prime minister
BJP Zilla Parishad of Nashik Dr. Atmaram Kumbharde said, Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman under the leadership of Prime Minister Narendra Modi has presented a budget for all round development of the country. It has a large number of facilities such as infrastructure, transportation facilities, financial provision for agriculture and agro-based industries, strengthening of market societies and independent infrastructure.
Digital services should have got money
Vishwas Co-op Bank Ltd. Vishwas Thakur, Founder President, said, “Banking sector had high expectations from the 2022 budget, but no announcement was made for the banking sector. The announcement of increasing the corporate tax for cooperatives from 11.5% to 15% is applicable only to cooperatives receiving income tax relief. In the era of digital banking, the announcement of providing 75 digital banking units in 75 districts across the country is justified, which justifies the attainment of freedom for the common man to benefit from digital banking.
Somewhere happiness, some sorrow
Kailas Bhosale, vice-president of Maharashtra Draksh Bagaitdar Association of Pune, says that a provision of 2 lakh 37 thousand crore MSP has been made for agricultural guarantee. The provision is for food grains and not for fruit crops. But this decision is welcome. We welcome the decision regarding chemical and pesticide free as well as organic farming. But he should be given options.
Students will benefit from the channel
Professor Jayant Mulay, President of Nashik District Coaching Classes Operator Association, says that, in the budget, the central government has announced to start 200 educational TV channels for the studies of class 5th to 12th, this will definitely help the students of rural areas and urban areas. Poor students will benefit. But this will have an adverse impact on the coaching sector, but it is a welcome step in the interest of the students.
Big fund needed for education
The President of Khajgi Primary Federation of Nashik District believes that, it is a welcome development that after Kareena’s position emerges, Shikshak Dhara will start 200 educational channels so that education can reach students from all walks of life. NPS can be saved up to 14% instead of 10%. This is a very good decision for the state like the Centre, but the same rule should apply.
relief to the transport industry
Nashik District Transport Association President Rajendra Phad said, Union Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman presented the budget for the year 2022. This year’s budget is a reassuring budget for the transport sector as more provisions have been made for infrastructure and highway expansion. The central government has set a target to build 25,000 km of roads while developing the country’s infrastructure.
