BHOPAL: Chief Minister Kamal Nath said the Union Budget has torn MP’s wellbeing into shreds.

In the revised estimate, the state’s share of Rs 11,556 crore from Central taxes has been slashed.

If Rs 2,677 crore which was cut off earlier is added to the present reduction, the amount would go up to Rs 14,233 crore, he said.

He said the speech of the Union Finance Minister may have been very long, but the budget was highly disappointing.

The budget has no roadmap for development, for ailing fiscal health and for arresting price rise, he said.

Indian economy would not have been in misery had Prime Minister Narendra Modi fulfilled the promises that he made before coming to power, Nath said.

Nothing special, says PC Sharma

Public relations minister PC Sharma said there was nothing extraordinary in the budge.

There is nothing to arrest the skyrocketing prices of essential items and to address the problems of the poor in the budget, he said, adding, the Central Government is anti-poor.

The effort has been to crack a cruel joke at the expense of people of the country with the help of statistical jugglery, he said.
