Union Minister Smriti Irani has described the budget presented as the future budget of developed India. During this, he called PM Modi a friend of the poor and targeted former Union Minister P Chidambaram.
New Delhi: After the presentation of the country's budget, Union Minister Smriti Irani has described it as the future budget of developed India. He said, 'The poor of India are friends of Modiji. The maximum allocation of defence in today's budget is making every Indian elated. This budget is the budget for Artificial Intelligence. The establishment of more than 150 nursing colleges is also a big step towards taking the country forward.
Giving free food grains to 80 crore Indians, and spending 2 lakh crores, the Modi government's friends are the poor of the country. If the Modi government sent money of more than 2 lakh crores to the bank accounts of more than 11 crore farmers through the Kisan Samman Nidhi, then who is that friend of Kaal? The farmer in the country is Modi's friend.
He said that today when there is an increase of 66 per cent in the PM Awas Yojana, then who is that poor whose 3 crore houses have been built so far. That poor is the one who is Modi's friend today. He said that the country and the world know that India's support is for Modi.
What did Smriti Irani say on P Chidambaram?
Targeting P Chidambaram, Smriti Irani said, 'When he (Chidambaram) was the Finance Minister, he did not deposit a single rupee in the farmers' account. The Modi government deposited more than Rs 2 lakh crore in the bank accounts of 11 crore farmers. If you want to compare, then I have already given some figures.
