Union Textiles, Women and Child Development Minister Smriti Irani on Monday termed the Union Budget as the one which takes care of every section of the society and will further strengthen the foundation of the country in every field. In a discussion organized on self reliant budget by the Delhi Bharatiya Janata Party and PHD Chamber of Commerce and Industry here, she said that the past six years have seen the country progress in all sectors including education, health, transport, railways and others due to farsightedness of the Narender Modi government.

Smriti Irani said that the government has ensured that provisions made for various sections of the society in the budget should be implemented in a time bound manner so that its fruits reach everyone in time and this budget has been made keeping all in mind. In fact, she said Prime Minister ensured nobody slept hungry during the critical time of corona epidemic and that the government provided free ration to every poor. Smriti Irani said there was lot of confusion and uncertainty about tackling of this unprecedented epidemic but the government handled the situation with great aplomb and finesse and so much so that today India is number two exporter of PPE kit in the world.

The minister also took a dig at the Congress and the Aam Aadmi Party, saying that one party is engaged only in promoting identity of only one family and the other party is busy ensuring it does not honour its own promises. She said Congress is today opposing farm laws while its own government in Punjab has made provision for contract farming there. But people are now aware of all these things and can’t be fooled, she said adding we are sure all people are fully supporting the progressive work of our government.

State BJP president Adesh Gupta said that during the corona times, the Modi government took care of each and every section of the society while AAP government in Delhi failed on this front. He said under the leadership of Home Minister Amit Shah, all positive steps were taken in the capital to deal with the pandemic. He charged the Kejriwal government has failed to keep any of its poll promises and giving an example, said despite making tall promises, he has not been able to do much in controlling the ever increasing level of pollution in Delhi.
