India’s Tradition of injustice of Central Government towards Maharashtra continues in Budget 2022 too, says Dy CM Ajit Pawar

Deputy Chief Minister Ajit Pawar of Maharashtra attacked the Centre on Tuesday, hours after Union Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman submitted the budget for FY 2022-2023, stating that the BJP-led government had continued its tradition of injustice against Maharashtra in this year’s budget as well.
According to the NCP leader, the Centre collected Rs 2 lakh 20 thousand crore in GST in the current fiscal year, of which Rs 48,000 crore was recovered from Maharashtra.
“In exchange for this central GST, Maharashtra received only 5,000 crore rupees,” Ajit Pawar stated. “This unfairness is clearly represented in this year’s budget, and it is impossible to find out what happened to Maharashtra from the budget.”
Reacting to the budget presented by FM Nirmala Sitharaman in Parliament, Ajit Pawar added that this year’s budget was as “meaningless” as the previous budgets.
“After completely failing to promise 2 crore jobs every year, a new hope of 60 lakh jobs has been shown this year,” he said.
“Like the announcements of ‘Make in India’, ‘Self-reliant India’, it seems that the announcements in this year’s budget has also go up in the air,” Mr Pawar added.
“There is no concrete announcement in this budget to reduce inflation and increase employment,” Ajit Pawar claimed further.
Union Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman tabled Union Budget 2022-23 in the Lok Sabha and later in Rajya Sabha today.
