Budget 2016: Nothing for farmers, says Kejriwal

New Delhi: Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal, reacting to the Union Budget presented by Finance Minister Arun Jaitley here on Monday, said "there is nothing in the budget for the farmers who are committing suicid."
"Farmers are in debt. The loans of rich industrialists have been waived off but not of the farmers. There is nothing for treatment of farmers in the budget," Kejriwal said in a tweet.
Merely opening up the stores of generic medicines would not work, Kejriwal said. Dispensaries should be set up in every village for free treatment.

He added that the middle class was also cheated in the budget.
"There is nothing for the middle class in this budget. Modi government cheated the middle class which votes for them," he said in a series of tweets.
"BJP vowed to bring back black money through enforcement, not through amnesty schemes. This is what (P) Chidambaram also did. What is the difference?" he asked on his tweeter handle.
