Kolkata: We must learned from the past. Past always gives us a superb experience about life and mistake. We should correct our mistake learned from the past. This will help to think positive in future and will also help to gather experience. Some Political think tank said this year budget is linked with past experiences?
So now the question raises that Why is this type of philosophical think related with the budget 2018? To see the answer, you have to look back fourteen years ago, means 2014. In that year NDA government completed full term and after that NDA falls in next year election. the people of India vote against Atal Bihari Vajpayee.
According to economists, There is huge different between rural India and urban india or you may called corporate India. In that Year, Shining India slogan was not working among poor. Perhaps in this year budget, Modi kept on mind this things and reaches out to poor to retain power in 2019.
According to BJP leader and economists Asish Sarkar, our ‘Sarkar’ wanted to work for poor. Sixty percent of people depend on rural economy. So, Modi ji’s main aim to improve those people’s condition and rural economy. He also said that there is no link between budget and upcoming election.
But political think-tank said different. According to them, this budget is totally for rural development. Government emphasized on Health Scheme like Ayusman Bharat instead of Corporate shining.
Minister Narendra Modi’s last full-fledged Budget is designed with eyes firmly on the restless underprivileged and angry farmers. Stepping up on the agenda of “empowering the poor”, finance minister Arun Jaitley on Thursday unfurled, with aplomb, one of the biggest ever health care schemes that will cover, he said, nearly 50 crore underprivileged people.
While the urban India remains tilted towards Modi-led BJP, it’s the rural belt that is rapidly shifting towards the Congress. Majority of India’s 1.25 billion population lives in the countryside, and winning rural voters, the BJP has realised, is the key to return to power at the Centre and in the states.
Mr Modi’s last Budget clearly indicates that he is not in a mood to woo his core votebank, the middle class, anymore. The Budget’s tilt towards rural India has further fuelled speculation that Lok Sabha polls could be advanced and held with the Assembly elections scheduled for end of this year.
But Asish Sarkar said that our first aim to serve nation first. After that people will decide to cast vote or not. Our aim is not to gather vote in upcoming election. he added that sometimes bad number comes after doing such good in examination.
