The Prime Minister praised Union Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman for presenting a “citizen-friendly, development-friendly and future-oriented Budget.”
“This Budget will make the nation ‘samrudh’ (prosperous) and will make the people ‘samarth’ (able),” he said.
This Budget will strengthen enterprises and will further increase the participation of women in the development of the country, he added.
“It will make Education better in the country and will take the benefits of artificial intelligence and space research amongst the people. This Budget has reforms for the economy, it has ‘Ease of Living’ for common people and welfare of villages and poor.”
“The Budget for 'New India' is one of hope and it is a Budget that will boost India's development in the 21st century. The Budget for 'New India' has a roadmap to transform the agriculture sector of India.”
"In last five years, our government took various steps to empower farmers, poor, Dalit and others. In the next five years, this empowerment will now make them the country's powerhouse. The country will get the energy of becoming the five- trillion- dollar economy through this powerhouse.”
“In the Budget, new initiatives have been announced for structural reforms in the agriculture sector. By investing in rural infrastructure, there will be new opportunities for jobs in villages. Just like the 'Swachh Bharat Mission', 'Har Ghar Jal' initiative will make the country strong to tackle the issue of water scarcity,” he declared.
