he Budget speech of the FM for many parts sounded like a speech written by a women's liberation activist or a charming gentleman who knows how to please women folk with sweet talk.
The FM's Statement in the closing parts of his speech – quoted here "I wish to draw a picture of three faces that represent the vast majority of the people of India. The first is the face of the woman. She is the girl child, the young student, the sportswoman, the homemaker, the working woman, and the mother" sounded straight out of a poem. True, as a society it is critical and imperative that we give more importance to women, but a budget speech needn't be a platform to practice poetry? Or should it?
"The Gender budget" – A technical term for expenditure on Women related schemes has been allocated Rs 97,134 Crore which is highly commendable. But how will this money be spent is not clear from the FMs Speech. It's a wait and watch game.Images:
