President, Haryana Pradesh Congress Committee and Rajya Sabha MP Kumari Selja said that this budget has brought disappointment to the people of Haryana as well as to the people of the country. Haryana has been completely sidelined in this budget and it has disappointed every section of the society.

Reacting to the union budget, Kumari Selja said that the BJP government has discriminated with Haryana in this budget. BJP is taking revenge from the people of Haryana as it had won only 40 seats in the assembly elections in the state and for this reason, the government has taken revenge from people of the state. For this reason only, people of Haryana have not received any benefit in this budget. According to the Union Budget, a museum will be built by the Archaeology Department in Rakhigarhi, Haryana, but it was signed during Congress government in 2013 and there is nothing new in this. This is an attempt to mislead the people.

She said that today the condition of the country was very bad as the GDP was lowest ever in six years. All national and international agencies are continuously reducing the estimates of GDP growth. During the current financial year, GDP growth is estimated to be five percent which will be the lowest in 11 years. While, on the other hand, the Finance Minister was speaking in the House that next year the GDP will be 10 per cent. There was nothing in this budget for the unorganized sector, she added.

At present, the biggest problem in the country is unemployment and in this budget, no step has been taken in this direction. Today, the country has the highest ever unemployment rate in 45 years and unemployment in Haryana is highest in the entire country.

According to the Centre for Monitoring of Indian Economy (CMIE), the unemployment rate in Haryana has reached an unprecedented level of 28.7 percent, which is highest in the country, but nothing has been announced in this budget towards giving employment, which is very disappointing. At the same time, it was being said from many years to double the income of farmers, but the conditions of farmers are getting worse and even after this, the farmers did not get anything in this budget.

In the year 2015, it was announced to develop 100 smart cities, but this time, it has been announced to develop only five smart cities. The status of the smart cities declared earlier is in front of everyone, she added.

She said that in this budget, a provision of Rs 85,000 crore budget has been made for Scheduled Castes and Backward Classes, but the funds released earlier for these sections have not been spent till now.Blaming the Center as well as the Haryana government for ignoring the state in this budget, Kumari Selja said that the government has no concern towards the people of the state. In the 100 days of this government, the people of Haryana have seen only drama. Every day a new episode comes out and people of the state are suffering due to this.
