THE interim union budget for 2019-20, placed in parliament by interim finance minister Piyush Goyal on February 1, is a fraudulent attempt to cheat the people in a desperate bid by the BJP-led government to attract votes when defeat in the ensuing parliamentary election is staring at its face.
VARIOUS mass and class organisations have denounced the union budget for 2018-19, placed in parliament by finance minister Arun Jaitley on February 1, as “anti-people, anti-worker and deceptive”. In the last full budget of the NDA government before the 2019 general elections, the finance minister resorted to lies and deceit through high rhetoric and overestimated projections.
CPI(M) Polit Bureau has issued the following statement on February 1, 2018
THIS last full budget of the Modi government before the next general elections reflects, once again, its clear commitment to serve the interests of foreign and domestic big corporates while mounting further assaults on the vast majority of the working people of our country. This assault is, however, sought to be window-dressed to appear as its opposite.
