Finance minister Arun Jaitley’s budget 2017 came as a wonderful surprise for the middle class whereas the opposition is still lamenting and protesting against the Modi government. Perhaps because the Centre was able to exercise some control on the flow of cash and assets in the name of political donations. However, a few economic experts and leaders appreciated and welcomed this year’s budget with open arms.

Here’s what Rajasthan BJP leaders said about the Union Budget 2017.

Rajasthan CM Vasundhara Raje Welcomed Budget 2017

While addressing a public rally today, CM Vasundhara Raje appreciated finance minister Arun Jaitley for preparing a precise, development-oriented business for the country.

This budget is the ideal reflection of the Union Government’s intent to work for the welfare of the poor, farmers, youth and women,” she said.

According to CM Raje, by including one crore Indian villages under Mission Antyodaya, government aims to eliminate poverty in the rural area. They’ll invest a massive capital in infrastructure that will boost tourism opportunities and provide employment to the youth in key sectors of development. Introducing 10 lakh crore credits with 60-days interest waiver is a boon for farmers suffering from occasional crop damage. The Centre has paid specific attention to mini soil testing labs, micro-irrigation and NABARD corpus that will boost agricultural output of the country.

More than 600 districts in the country will get specialized skill development centres that will empower the youth with appropriate training. CM Raje appreciated the Centre’s take on tax exemptions. She expressed her appreciation for Incredible India 2.0 campaigns and setting up of five tourism zones in Rajasthan and crude oil reserves in Bikaner.

  • State secretary Mukesh Dadhich sees the budget as a tool to strengthen state infrastructure. The government will allot Rs 3 lakh, 96 thousand crores for infrastructure. This will accelerate the growth of Indian cities and villages.
  • BJP Rajasthan Chief Secretary Bhajanlal Sharma appreciated Jaitley for dedicating this year’s budget to farmers, rural population and villages. According to Sharma, Rajasthan farmers can benefit from crop insurance, increased loan grants and affordable housing.
  • BJP Office in-charge, Mukesh Paarik feels the budget suits the requirements of the middle class. Tax exemptions in the initial I-T slabs will encourage more people to file I-T returns in future. This way, the middle-class families can save money on their income.
  • In treasurer Ramkumar Bhootda’s opinion, Jaitley took a brave step by capping political donations. Using digital media for transferring political funds will ensure transparency in the system. Now, the political parties cannot use black money for election campaigning.
  • Following Jaitley’s presentation in the parliament, office In-charge Mukesh Chelavat made key announcements regarding Jal swavlamban and skill development schemes. According to Chelavat, Rajasthan government will construct a pond worth 10 lakhs to address water scarcity in state.
