Union Budget has given Convenience to capitalists by cutting pockets of poor: Hemant Soren

Ranchi: Chief Minister Hemant Soren while giving his reaction on Union Budget 2023-24 presented by Union Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman said the budget has given convenience to the capitalists by cutting the pockets of the poor. He said that he is an optimistic person.

Crores of tribals, Dalits, backward, farmers, youth, women and labourers were expecting that special arrangements would be made regarding health, education, employment which were most affected during the Corona pandemic. We had expected that the time would be extended for GST compensation but contrary to expectation the budget for MNREGA which is the lifeline for rural India education and health has been cut.

The Chief Minister said that the silence of the budget on the issues of jobs, employment, inflation etc is worrying. He said that there has been no discussion on raising the minimum support price (MSP) on various agricultural products. I think they (the central government) have accepted that farmers’ income has doubled just by announcing them he said.

Hemant Soren said that from the point of view of Jharkhand, he was trying to find out what has been done for the state in this budget. He said that the state is among the ones who earn a maximum profit for the country on the basis of per kilometer rail track, in such a situation, the scope of operation of passenger rail should have been increased, the state should have got new rail lines, new trains and claimed that everyone understands as to who will benefit from the airport era. The Chief Minister has said that only words have been left to support the middle class.
