Applauding the Union Budget 2023-2024 pre- sented by Union Finance Minister Nirmal Sitharaman on Wednesday, Maharashtra Deputy Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis said it is a ‘growth-oriented budget’, and has also thought of the ‘last person in the society’.
The Budget is based on the concept of ‘Sarvajan Hitai’ and considered the last per- son in society, like the poor, farmers, middle-class, entrepreneurs and the youth, the BJP leader said.
“The Budget shows the way to a developed India in the next 25 years,” said Fadnavis, in his initial reac- tions. He said “this can also be called a growth budget, a green budget, an infrastruc- ture budget, a middle-class
budget or the last man’s budget, as all sections of the population are getting hugely benefited from it”.
Fadnavis pointed out that the Budget has proposed investments of Rs 10 lakh- crore on infrastructure, which is a huge employment generator which will pay off enormously.
With 27 crore people com- ing under the EPFO, the employment in the formal sector has increased over the last eight years, he said, giv- ing full marks to the Budget.
