There is no concrete policy for the youth, women, farmers and the elderly in the budget. It has no actual decisions on employment, unemployment allowance. There is no change in the attitude and policy towards farmers, the government is still cheating them in instalments. Congress came to power on the promise of a liquor ban, but the budget boasts an excise increase of six-hundred crores! After alarming death figures due to the negligence and inadequate health system of the Chhattisgarh government during the pandemic, the dismal steps in the health sector in the budget confirm the insensitivity of the state government.
