Terming the Union budget as “visionary and dynamic”, BJP on Monday said that it offers agriculturists and weaker areas and will also prompt strengthening of the youth.
“The budget is for everyone. The union budget 2016-17 has been accommodated framework like ports, rail, airplane terminals. In the sector of health, poor people, upto Rs one lakh expense of hospitalization will be borne by the administration. This is a dynamic and visionary spending plan,” Union Environment Minister Prakash Javadekar said.
Similar views were echoed by other ministers of the ruling party with Union minister Mukhtar Abbas Naqvi calling it a “perfect, people-friendly and progressive budget.”
“India is a country where agriculture holds a prime place but it is after years that this has been reflected in a budget which gives priority to farmers as well as weaker sections. This budget is one which will also lead to empowerment of the youth,” he said.
Union Health Minister J.P. Nadda termed it as a “positive and balanced” budget and said that there were several initiatives for health and other social sectors which reflect Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s vision of ‘Sabka Saath Sabka Vikas’.
“Proposed Health Protection Scheme will greatly benefit the common people of the country. This budget will help India achieve twin objectives of economic growth, equitable distribution of benefits and resources at an accelerated pace,” Mr. Nadda said in a series of tweets.
He said that farmers, artisans, women, unorganised workers, people living below the poverty line and the youth of the country will greatly benefit through this budget.
