New Delhi, Feb 29 (ANI): Congress Leader P. Chidambaram on Monday said that one big take away from Budget 2016-17 was that there is no new idea presented by Finance Minister Arun Jaitley, adding that NDA has followed its own brand of budget making. He further said that there is no major relief for tax payers, and the reduction of corporate tax rate from 30 percent to 29 percent for a very limited class, is laughable. He said that the only virtue of the budget is that it has left every section disappointed and he is happy that the UPA schemes have been continued with. He added that the government is boasting that they collected more tax than ever, but it was only due to excise on crude and not from corporate tax.

Swamy questioned that despite being in part of UPA government at that time, why had Chidambaram maintained silence, if there were grave doubts about the extent of Afzal’s involvement in the 2001 Parliament attack. He further said a case of sedition should be filed against him for provoking people to bring down the current government.
