Rahul Gandhi to first ‘understand’ Budget before commenting in twitter: FM Sitharaman
In response to a question about Rahul Gandhi’s criticism of the Budget, Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman stated that commenting on something just to put something on Twitter does not help.
‘I would like Shri Rahul Gandhi, the leader of the oldest political party, to understand what has been said in the Budget. I have repeatedly mentioned where and what benefits each of the categories he has named, such as youth and farmers. I feel sorry for people who respond quickly. I am prepared to respond with a quick understanding response. However, just because you want to post something on Twitter does not help. ‘I only pity a party with a leader who says things without thinking,’ she says.
Sitharaman stated that Rahul Gandhi should first implement his ideas in Congress-ruled states before approaching the BJP. The FM stated that she welcomes criticism, but not from someone who hasn’t done his homework. Also Read | Budget highlights: Natural farming, 2.37 lk cr MSP, Drones, Digital, Rural enterprise.
‘Is the employment situation in Punjab good? Are farmers in Maharashtra good? Is Rahul Gandhi working to prevent cotton farmers from committing suicide in Maharashtra today? That is why, before speaking on any subject, he should first speak in Maharashtra, Chhattisgarh, and Punjab before speaking to us. As criticism, almost irresponsible comments are being made. ‘I will accept criticism, but not from someone who hasn’t done his homework,’ Sitharaman said.
Nirmala Sitharaman, Finance Minister, today suggested Congress leader Rahul Gandhi first ‘understand’ the budget before commenting on it. I feel sorry for people who respond quickly. It doesn’t help to post something on Twitter just because you want to. He should first do something in the states that are governed by Congress and then talk about it.
