SAD president and former Deputy Chief Minister Sukhbir Singh Badal today blasted the budget presented by Finance Minister Manpreet Singh Badal last week as " a black paper of white lies."What this government needs is a good Finance Minister but what it has got is a bad accountant . A good budget and a good Finance Minister gives fresh and constructive  ideas while a bad budget and bad FM  give only figures.," said Mr Badal. "This is not even a budget as it contains no vision of the government and no have been set for Punjab nor any roadmap to take the State forward. “It is just a statement of broken promises and directionless policies with no fresh and constructive ideas nor vision nor a programme of action. There is nothing new in it as it just repeats all the figures and fake promises presented last year," said Mr Badal addressing the Punjab Vidhan Sabha this evening.Mr Badal also had a dig at the Congress government  saying that  the Chief Minister was really acting like a Maharaja of the olden times."These Maharajas used to keep a state poet (Raj Kavi)  and a court jester (a maskhara). Captain Amarinder Singh  has both a poet and a joker with him but no Finance Minister,"  said Mr Badal.without naming any minister.Mr Badal said the budget contained only misquoted poetry of anti-India poets like Iqbal who were the main figures in breaking up the country into two parts. "Iqbal and Jinnah set brotherly communities of Hindus and Muslims against each other.Manpreet SIngh is also an expert in dividing brothers and therefore his choice of the poet , in preference to our leading and beloved poets like Tagore, Gulzar and Prof Mohan SIngh, is not surprising." Mr Badal said the economy runs on market sentiment but this government and its Finance Minister  have been destroying the market on sentiment  on Punjab which acts as a blockade against investment in the State," he added.
