New Delhi: Soon after the Budget 2022 announcement by Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman, Opposition parties slammed the centre citing the lacunas of the government.

While former Congress chief Rahul Gandhi tweeted that the budget has nothing for salaried class, middle class, poor and deprived, youth, farmers and the MSMEs, former Union Minister Jairam Ramesh, Randeep Surjewala and Manish Tiwari, several other Opposition leaders including Trinamool chief Mamata Banerjee, Rajya Sabha MP Darek o Brien, Shiv Sena’s Priyanka Chaturvedi and the CPM General  Secretary Sitaram Yechury have also slammed the government for ignoring poor, middle class, farmers and youth in the Union Budget.

Calling it a Pegasus spin budget, the Trinamool Congress chief Mamata Banerjee tweeted that the budget has zero for common people, who are getting crushed by unemployment and inflation.

Lok Sabha MP Manish Tewari called the budget insipid, unimaginative, uninspiring, unrealistic and unimplementable. Calling it a disappointing budget, Senior Congress leader Shashi Tharoor said Achhe din pushed even further away. No relief to middle class.

While the CPM general secretary Sitaram Yechury asked that who will be benefited with this budget, Telangana Chief Minister K Chandrashekar Rao termed the Union Budget 2022 as a ‘golmaal budget,’ in which the central government has left the common man in a state of despair.

Reaction to the budget, Congress communication department head Randeep Surjewala tweeted that the Finance Minister and the Prime Minister have again deeply disappointed them indirect tax measures. This is a betrayal of India’s salaried class and the middle class, he wrote in his tweet.
