If the Budget 2020 news and updates have flooded your social media timelines, you have landed in the right place.
On Saturday, Nirmala Sitharaman announced the much-anticipated Union Budget 2020 in a packed parliament. Needless to say, people on social media turned up in numbers too.
The Narendra Modi government has allocated Rs 85,000 crore for the empowerment of Scheduled Caste and OBCs, and Rs 53,700 crore for Scheduled Tribes.
A Chennai-Bangalore expressway will come up soon and 100 new airports will be built by 2024, Nirmala Sitharaman said earlier in her budget speech.
The FM said that this budget was meant to boost the income and spending power of people, raising hopes... what? You aren't here to read about the "boring" budget stuff because none of it makes sense to you?
You have got company. While many on Twitter did tune in to Sitharaman's speech to listen about how they will be spending (read: saving) their money going forward, others were busy meme-ing the budget.
PS: Middle class jokes incoming.
I don't care what the budget says, the millennials are already spending all they've got in helping the GDP. Every month.— Pranav Sapra (@pranavsapra) February 1, 2020
