NEW DELHI: Congress president Rahul Gandhi on Thursday said the ruling BJP has failed to deliver on any of its promises and will be shown the door in a year’s time when the country goes to polls.

Mounting a scathing attack on the Modi government hours after the Union Budget 2018-19 was tabled in Parliament, Rahul claimed the budget had been a disappointment to all sections of the economy, be it farmers, the youth or industry and businesses.

“4 years gone; still promising FARMERS a fair price. 4 years gone; FANCY SCHEMES, with NO matching budgets. 4 years gone; no JOBS for our YOUTH. Thankfully, only 1 more year to go,” he said in a tweet.

Earlier in the day, the Congress panned the Union Budget 2018 as “misleading the people of the country”.

“This Budget is nothing but eyewash”, Congress leader Manish Tewari said, adding that the government has attempted to pay “lip service” to the farmer and marginalised sections of the society.

“If the government was truly serious and committed to the welfare of the society and farmers, then this is the budget they have presented in 2014-15 when they had full five years to be able to implement whatever mandate the people have given them”, said Tewari.

In his last Budget before the 2019 Lok Sabha election, finance minister Arun Jaitley unveiled a slew of measures for agriculture as well as the rural sector and announced a new health insurance scheme for the poor, but provided little relief to the middle class.

While continuing the 10-15 per cent surcharge on super-rich, he raised the health and education cess, levied on all taxable income, to 4 per cent from 3 per cent at present.

“While making the proposals in this year’s budget, we have been guided by our mission to especially strengthen agriculture, rural development, health, education, employment, MSME (micro, small and medium enterprises) and infrastructure sectors of Indian economy,”

said.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi termed the Budget as “development-friendly” and said it will strengthen the vision of a ‘new India’.

The Budget is “farmer friendly, common citizen friendly, business environment friendly” and will add to ‘ease of living’ and ‘ease of doing business’, Modi added.
