Speaking to reporters, Assam Chief Minister Tarun Gogoi said the Budget is a big respite for the common people and he thanked UPA chairperson Sonia Gandhi, Prime Minister Dr Manmohan Singh and Finance minister P Chidambaram for a hike of Rs 2,000 crore for the north eastern region.
On the other hand, noted economist Dr Jayanta Madhab said it’s all about election. He wondered how the finance minister will be able to relief the farmers across the state with the huge Rs 60,000 crore.
