Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh on Wednesday lauded Finance Minister Arun Jaitley’s annual budget which provides for systemic and a transformative shift to Indian economy, saying this will give an impetus to growth, people welfare and help all sections of the society in unleashing their true potential.

“The Union Budget provisions honour the honest tax payers, curb the flow of black money and provide relief to the middle class. In spite of global uncertainties, India is seen as a bright spot of growth and the Budget further consolidates the existing growth momentum,” Singh tweeted.

Singh said integration of farmers with agricultural processing units will boost the farmers’ income, adding allocation of Rs. 10 lakh crore for agricultural credit is a big positive.

“Resilience of Indian farmers is indicative in higher estimated growth in Agriculture. The Budget provisions will make them more resilient,” he said in a series of tweet. The Home Minister further said by giving affordable housing the infra status, the budget has taken a big step towards realising the dream of ‘Housing for All’ by 2022.
