BJP slams Union budget, sees nothing for Assam


BJP and All India United Democratic Front have slammed the Union Budget 2012-13 a day after it was presented by finance minister Pranab Mukherjee in Parliament on Friday.


Talking to reporters, BJP MP Ramen Deka said that the Centre should declare a separate time zone for the northeast for increasing the pace of development and work efficiency in the region. Party MP Romen Deka raised the issue of a separate time zone for the northeast under rule 377 on March 14. Deka told a press conference here on Saturday that there was nothing significant for the northeast in the budget and the increase in taxes would cause problems to the common people.
