The Yogi Adityanath government of Uttar Pradesh presented the budget for the financial year 2022-23. The first budget of about 6 lakh 15 thousand crore rupees was presented in the legislature. In the budget, Finance Minister Suresh Khanna focused on all sectors including the state's security system, women's security, jobs for the youth, agriculture, etc.
Samajwadi Party chief Akhilesh Yadav has given the first reaction on behalf of the opposition regarding this budget. He said that this was the sixth budget of the government but everything has decreased in this budget.
Describing the budget as disappointing, the SP chief said that “employment is visible only in figures. But the youth in the villages are disappointed with the lack of employment. To whom the government had promised that wheat, rice, oil and channa were promised, but where are all these. Children in government schools have not got money for books and clothes. They are not getting food items in the mid day mill at the right time. Inflation is increasing continuously in the country. The government tells about the payment of sugarcane to the farmer, but it does not tell how much is due.”
UP |BJP govt said that they will double the income of farmers by 2022 but do they have an answer on that front? Inflation is rising, prices of pulses, oil, fuel, cement & steel have risen.
