Maharashtra Budget- Election-Oriented Budget, States Rohit
Hitting out at the Maharashtra government, Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) MLA Rohit Pawar, on Thursday, said that the state budget for 2023-24 presented today is “election-oriented”.
“The speech made in the assembly while presenting the state budget for 2023-24 was Election-oriented. If you look at the Budget allocation, there is nothing for the common people of the state. There is no concrete policy designed to increase the Foreign Direct Investment (FDI) flow in the state”, as per Rohit Pawar.
“The state government also announced a 50 per cent discount on ticket fares in state-run buses to women, but what if the Maharashtra State Road Transport Corporation (MSRTC) will the government strengthen it?” he asked.
Pawar further stated that the speech made today in the assembly was more of a political rather than a budget speech. “No allocation were done for many schemes. And many allocations were done on references to the Central government. So concrete numbers were provided. We will also have to see how much of the budget allocation will be utilized. The Budget has nothing for the betterment of Maharashtra, he added”.
Deputy Chief Minister of Maharashtra Devendra Fadnavis, who is also the state Finance Minister, on Thursday presented the Eknath Shinde-led government’s first Budget for the year 2023-24 in the state assembly.
The Budget was presented based on the principle of “Panchamrut” and dedicated to farmers, women, youth, employment and the environment.
