A budget that is an epitome of fundamental economic miscalculationsA budget that never addresses the need for better healthcare, education and provision of basic amenities or has no concrete proposals for reducing unemployment, is always something that is fundamentally flawed in principle.
The great FM and her team of economic advisors have announced a big bang budget that has something for the rich, upwardly mobile professionals and af course, for the capitalists. Nothing for the poor, the marginalized. Nothing for senior citizens. The digital revolution is fine, provided the masses have access to it in their own local languages and not just Hindi. In fact, this reality has never been even thought about.
Social security related spending is down. Of course, in less than 90 days, we will notice that Ambani and Adani would have become much richer, when the financial year results are announced for the Corporates.
A totally misdirected budget that makes the rich, much richer. Nothing more, nothing less.
