Budget 2016: PM Modi passed with flying colours, says Rajnath

New Delhi: Home Minister Rajnath Singh on Monday hailed the general budget and said "if the budgets were like annual exams for Prime Minister Narendra Modi, then I must say he has passed the exams with flying colours".
Singh said the budget presented by Finance Minister Arun Jaitley "gives the government an opportunity to deepen the economic foundation and widen the infrastructure network of our country".
The minister said the budget was "pro farmer, pro poor and pro reform".
