New Delhi [India], February 1 (ANI): Union Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman had raised a lot of expectations regarding the Budget 2021 and she has fulfilled all of them, said NITI Aayog Vice-Chairman Rajiv Kumar on Monday.
"In my opinion, Finance Minister had raised a lot of expectations regarding Budget 2021 and she has fulfilled all of them. Given the current times, the budget is focussed on India's growth and is tailored to accelerate the growth rate," said Kumar.
"It's (Defence) not part of speech but it's there (part of the budget). FM has focussed on 6 major pillars in the budget. Defence expenditure is important but less connected to our progress. Budget 2021 is focused on accelerating the pace of our progress," he added.
