Reuters, INDIA ( A file report from NDTV)

While reacting to the Union Budget debate in Rajya Sabha on Friday, Nirmala Sitaraman slammed the Opposition and accused them of continuously claiming a false narrative that the government just worked for cronies and said some of the Centre's schemes were for the poor.

Nirmala Sitharaman, Minister of Finance, said today that the ongoing Covid pandemic did not deter the Central Government from taking the requisite reform steps to maintain the country's long-term growth.

I would like to emphasize - stimulus plus reforms. The pandemic did not stop us from implementing reforms that would maintain development in the long term.

We have taken not just one-off reforms, not just now and then, but reforms rivetted in a policy which will give a neat background, a layout spread before the Parliament for people to know that this is a reform that will lay a path for India to be one of the top economies of the world in the coming decade and further," the Finance Minister said while replying to the discussion on the Union Budget in Lok Sabha.
