Truly visionary and most reformative step of providing medical insurance to almost half of India. This is what New India would look like where every citizen of the country leads a healthy and prosperous life. #NewIndia #NewIndiaBudget #Budget2018

Here are the Tweets of some leaders expressing disappointment on Arun Jaitley’s 2018 Budget
Not a single extra rupee increased in Delhi’s share in Central taxes since 2001-02, stays at Rs 325 Cr. No other part of India gets such treatment.
BJP govt at Center continues to treat Delhi residents as second-grade citizens. N/1

I had expected some financial assistance to important infrastructure projects for national capital. Am disappointed that Centre continues its step-motherly treatment to Delhi

Promise of increasing Farmers' incomes remains unfulfilled. The input costs conveniently ignore the rising costs of petroleum/diesel
