‘Budget is Developmental and Transformational ’: Javadekar 

Environment Minister’s Reaction to Union Budget 2016-17 

Minister of State (Independent Charge) of Environment, Forest and Climate Change, Shri Prakash Javadekar, has said that Union Budget 2016-17 is a developmental and transformational Budget. Making his comments soon after the Budget was presented in Parliament here today, Shri Javadekar said that the Budget is completely devoted to the upliftment of the poor, rural development, welfare of farmers and empowerment of the poor. 

The following is the text of the Environment Minister’s comment on Union Budget 2016-17: 

“This Budget is completely devoted to the upliftment of the poor, rural development, welfare of farmers and empowerment of the poor. The rural areas will be provided by 24x7 electricity, all weather roads and water. Every Gram Panchayat will get Rs.80 lakh for developmental work. It is affordable housing for the poor, rise of income, employment generation through MNREGA and other schemes and healthcare upto Rs. 1 lakh free of cost. This is a big gift for the poor. For the farmer, tackling the agricultural distress, doubling the farm income in five years, comprehensive insurance taking care of individual losses, dairy government is a rejuvenation package for agriculture. 

For jawans, it is OROP and for ‘Naujawan (youth), it is employment and entrepreneurship incentivisation. We are investing Rs 2 lakh crore in infrastructure in roads, rail, ports and airports. This is a real developmental and transformational Budget, which reflects the ideology and commitment of the Prime Minister. Finance Minister deserves real credit for all the hard work to bring this transformational Budget.”
