Union Budget 'completely visionless', says Mamata
Kolkata: Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee termed the Union Budget 2019 as 'completely visionless' and criticised the hike in the price of petrol and diesel that will hit the transport sector, in turn affecting the market and kitchens, leading to hardship of common men.
Reacting sharply to the same, Banerjee tweeted on Friday: "Budget 2019 is completely visionless. In fact the total vision is derailed. On top of it, not only have they imposed cess but also special additional excise duty on petrol and diesel leading to price increase by Rs 2.50/litre for petrol and Rs 2.30/litre for diesel. As a result price hike will hit from transport to market to kitchens. Commoners are suffering and suffering. This is Election prize."
