Akhilesh calls UP budget 'betrayal of people'

LUCKNOW: Describing the Uttar Pradesh finances for 2019-20 a "betrayal of the people in the name of Sabka Saath Sabka Vikas", Samajwadi Party leader Akhilesh Yadav Thursday stated the financial plan neither has "development nor vision".

"Till now 60 per cent of this government's budget has come (three budgets in a five-year term). The person running the government is 'sanyasi' and 'yogi', who does not understand much. The budget neither has anything for 'rajkosh' (state exchequer) nor for 'dharmkosh' (religions affairs). This budget will hardly get any marks from me," Yadav told journalists.

"This budget is betrayal of the people by the state government in the name of 'Sabka Saath sabka vikas'. It neither has development nor vision," he stated.

Stating that there used to be "nothing new" within the financial plan, Yadav stated, "There is nothing in it for farmers, traders and for checking unemployment. There is nothing for health, security and education either. This budget is disappointing."

"Projects started during the SP tenure which could not be completed have got some money. Now elections are approaching, so these projects got some money," Yadav stated, claiming the Yogi govt had failed to offer "even a half" of what his govt had given to Ayodhya, Mathura and Kashi in the once a year financial allotments.

"No new sainik school, medical college. Money given for expressway is insufficient. No fund for solar energy sector. There is also no budget for Make in India", he stated.

Noting the provisions for 'gau mata' (cows) tasks within the finances, Akhilesh called them "meagre" allocations.
