Union Budget 2022-23 brought to woo public with new promises: Mayawati
Lucknow, Feb 1 (PTI) Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) chief Mayawati on Tuesday said the Union Budget has been brought to "woo the public with new promises" and alleged that the Centre has forgotten to implement its old announcements.

In a series of tweets in Hindi, Mayawati said, "The Union Budget presented in the Parliament today has been brought to woo the public with new promises, while the implementation of the past promises and old announcements have been forgotten. How appropriate is it? Why is the Centre free from worries of poverty, unemployment, inflation and suicides by farmers."

"The central government is patting its back. The tax burden has made the life of the people miserable. Hence, it would be better if the Centre makes efforts to reduce the despair and disappointment among the people due to inflation and insecurity," she said.

Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman on Tuesday unveiled a bigger Rs 39.45 lakh crore Budget, with higher spending on highways to affordable housing with a view to fire up the key engines of the economy to sustain a world-beating recovery from the pandemic.

While she primed up spending on infrastructure to create jobs and boost economic activity, Sitharaman did not tinker with income tax slabs or tax rates. PTI NAV CK
