New Delhi: The Trinamool Congress has slammed the Union Budget presented by Finance Minister Arun Jaitley in the Parliament on Monday.

“This Budget is not constructive, nor is it creative. It is stereotype and routine,” the party said.

“We are left with no option, but to call it a hopeless budget. No hope for industry, no hope for farmers, no hope for poor, no hope for middle class, no hope even for Sensex.”

The Finance Minister unveiled a budget that is largely being described as pro-poor which is focused on kick-starting the rural economy.
