Budget 2016

Perhaps the biggest pointer to this year’s Budget is that even Rahul Gandhi did not have much to criticise. Digvijay Singh who is generally known for his criticisms, for once was forced to agree with the Budget. Leaders like Anand Sharma and Kapil Sibal weren’t very vocal either. Normally most of these senior Congress leaders never miss out on an opportunity to hit out at the Modi Government. Even within the party, Shatrughan Sinha who considers Jaitley his political opponent and Yashwant Sinha, Shatrughan’s political elder too came out in support of the Budget. If people like Shatrughan Sinha and Yashwant Sinha who usually love taking potshots at Arun Jaitley have supported the Budget, one does not need to elaborate much about the Budget or how it would impact people.
