    Union Budget 2024: Shashi Tharoor, Mamata Banerjee, Kharge & others react

    Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman's presentation of the Union Budget 2024 on July 23 has drawn criticism from opposition leaders.West Bengal CM Mamata Banerjee slammed BJP for lacking direction, neglecting people's needs, and making empty promises during elections, especially towards Darjeeling and Kalimpong.

He lamented the perceived neglect of promises made versus outcomes achieved. Samajwadi Party's Dimple Yadav echoed similar sentiments, emphasizing unfulfilled promises and concerns over women's safety and rural purchasing power. Akhilesh Yadav highlighted unresolved farmer issues and youth employment as critical unaddressed areas.
