New Delhi , February 4 : Congress leader Rahul Gandhi on Thursday termed the Union Budget 2021-22 as "crony centric", which "betrays" the employers of the Ministry of Micro, Small and Medium Enterprises (MSMEs).
"Modi's crony centric budget means- Struggling MSMEs given no low-interest loans, no GST relief. The employers of India's largest workforce betrayed," Gandhi tweeted. Earlier, he had said that Prime Minister Narendra Modi is planning to "handover India's assets to crony capitalist friends". He slammed the government for not "putting cash in the hands of the people".
Gandhi also said that the government should support MSMEs, farmers and workers for generating employment.
