Srinagar:  Former Jammu and Kashmir chief minister Omar Abdullah on Monday said Finance Minister Arun Jaitley has made the opposition’s job a “bit tougher” with his general budget not focused on the affluent of the nation.
 
 
“By not focusing the benefits of #UnionBudget2016 on the #suitboot people Arun Jaitley has cleverly made the opposition’s job a bit tougher,” Abdullah tweeted in his first reaction to the union budget.
 
The minister began his speech saying that India was a bright spot in the global economy in these difficult times. He later outlined his nine focus areas for this annual budget exercise in which rural development took the top slot.
