Budget disappointing: Sukhu



shimla, February 2

Former HPCC president Sukhwinder Singh Sukhu has described the Union Budget as disappointing as it ignored Himachal.

He said even Minister of State for Finance Anurag Thakur failed to bring any major scheme for the state.

Himachal is celebrating the golden jubilee of statehood but no package had been given to it while a small state like Goa had been given Rs 300 crore. All four Lok Sabha members from Himachal are from the BJP and Prime Minister Narendra Modi had been saying that Himachal was his second home, but instead of giving relief to apple growers and farmers, the government had imposed an agriculture cess, he added. — TNS
