New Delhi, Feb 1 : Terming the Budget speech by Finance Minister Normala Sitharaman as 'rambling' and 'hollow', former Congress president Rahul Gandhi on Saturday said there is no strategic idea in the Budget to address issues that the country is facing like unemployment. "The main issue facing the economy is unemployment.
I didn't see any strategic, concrete idea that would help our youth get jobs. I saw tactical stuff but no central idea. It shows the mindset of the government, all talk and talk but nothing happening. There are lot of repetition, rambling", Mr Rahul told mediapersons moments after the presentation of the Budget.
"Maybe this was the longest Budget speech in history but it had nothing, it was hollow", he added. Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman on saturday presented the Union Budget for 2020-21 in the Lok Sabha. (UNI)
