Budget 2022: WB CM Mamata Banerjee says ‘budget has zero for common people’

West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee on Tuesday slammed the Union Budget 2022-23, calling it a “Pegasus spin budget” that provides “nothing” to ordinary people.
The West Bengal Chief Minister remarked on Twitter, “There is no money in the budget for ordinary people who are suffering from unemployment and inflation.
A Pegasus spin Budget has the government lost in huge phrases that mean nothing.” Mamata claims that the Central Government is all about great speeches and no real action.
Nirmala Sitharaman, the Union Finance Minister, presented the Union Budget 2022 in the Lok Sabha and the Rajya Sabha on Tuesday.
While presenting the Budget in the Lower House, the Finance Minister said that India’s economic growth in the current year is estimated to be 9.2 per cent, the highest among all large economies.
She also said that Union Budget 2022-23 seeks to lay the foundation and give a blueprint of the economy over the next 25 years.
The budget session of Parliament began on Monday with the address by President Ram Nath Kovind to both Houses in the Central Hall.
The first part of the Union Budget Session of Parliament will be held from January 31 to February 11 and the second part of the Budget Session will take place from March 14 to April 8.
