NEW DELHI: Hailing the Union Budget as Sanjeevani (new lease of life) to a ‘moribund economy’, Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Thursday said it would convert hopes and aspirations of the people into trust. He added that it was much in line with his government’s endeavour to bring India out of crisis.
“This Budget is a new ray of hope for the poor and downtrodden sections of society,” he said. The Prime Minister stated that despite the “testing times”, his government was committed to extending every possible help to the poor, the neo-middle class and the middle class, inspired by the mantra of ‘Sabka Saath, Sabka Vikas’.
Assuring the people that the government was leaving no stone unturned in developing India and to rid the nation of the challenges it faces, he said for the “moribund economy”, this budget had come as “a sanjeevani and an arunoday (sunrise) for the last man in the line”.
He said his government was committed to and confident of bringing India out of crisis, which is due to the capabilities and strength of 125 crore Indians.
