"On the vision of PM Modi, the general budget will prove fruitful in the direction of making the country the leading economy of the world," the Haryana Chief Minister said. "It is not just a budget, but also a vision document of the 'Amrit Kaal' of futuristic India.
This is an all-encompassing and all-inclusive budget, giving new energy to the countrymen. It will contribute significantly in writing a new chapter of good governance, poverty alleviation, socio-economic transformation and employment generation," he added.
Khattar said that the resolve to include all sections of the society in the mainstream of development is visible in every aspect of the Budget presented earlier on Wednesday by Sitharaman in Parliament.
