New Delhi, Feb 2 : Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) MP Sanjay Singh objected to the phrase used by NDA leaders describing the Budget 2019 as a “surgical strike that has rendered the opposition speechless,”saying, Opposition is not living in Pakistan, this is India and warned BJP to avoid using such phrases”
“Modi government is giving Rs 17/day to farmers and calling this a surgical strike. Is this Pakistan? Remember, this is India,not Pakistan. At least don’t use such phrase,” Senior leader Sanjay Singh said.
Singh said that instead of waiving farm loans, the Modi government is proposing to give Rs 17 per day and terming this as a surgical strike on the Opposition.
“Did you (Narendra Modi government) waive farmers’ loans? You have waived loans of big businessmen, Singh added.
Sanjay Singh said that the interim Budget presented by Union Minister Piyush Goyal shows that Modi government is again cheating the farmers and middle class. “The government has made a historic plan called the PM-Kisan programme. Those small farmers who have less than two acres will get a support of Rs. 6,000,” Goyal said. “It will be transferred directly to the bank accounts of farmers in three instalments of Rs. 2,000,” he said. He announced an allocation of Rs. 75,000 crore for the scheme.
