AIUDF unhappy with Union Budget


AIUDF president caterogically termed the Union Budget as anti-poor. Talking to reporters on Saturday, he said that the new taxes were going to hurt the common people. He said that the budget has nothing for the common people, and the poor are going to be hit hard. According to him, at a time when the Brahmaputra was creating havoc in the form of floods and erosion, there was a high expectation in Assam Assam that the finance minister would come out with special measures for the state.


He further said that even President Pratibha Patil's address had no mention of flood and erosion problem.
