With the budget session of the Rajasthan Assembly underway, a comprehensive state budget will be presented by the state’s Finance Minister, Diya Kumari, on Wednesday, July 10. Rajasthan Deputy Chief Minister and Finance Minister Diya Kumari stated that the budget has been prepared with all sections of society in mind.

“A double-engine government has been formed in the state, so we will try our best to live up to the expectations of the people. Good work has been done on the budget. There are big announcements for every section,” she said.

It is noteworthy that the Rajasthan Budget comes at a time when the BJP lost 11 out of 25 seats in the Lok Sabha elections. Therefore, it is hoped that the announcements will consider the upcoming by-elections to five seats.

Rajasthan Minister Kanhaiya Lal Choudhary spoke about the upcoming budget and said, “A bill will be introduced to ensure that the water being used is recycled in the same ratio. A bill will also be introduced to ensure that water used for purposes like cleaning is STP-treated.”

“To increase public awareness about saving water, campaigns will be launched, and brand ambassadors will be appointed. Rajasthan CM Bhajan Lal Sharma has set a target of planting 7 crore plants,” he added.

Minister Kanhaiya Lal Choudhary also mentioned, “There is no shortage of funds in the government concerning the department of drinking water in Rajasthan. Besides introducing laws, common people must also pay attention to water conservation. Our government and the Chief Minister have set a target of planting 7 crore saplings in Rajasthan this monsoon.”

“MNREGA workers will be employed to ensure that at least 5 crore out of 7 crore plants remain alive. One MNREGA worker will be assigned to take care of 100 plants, which will also provide employment to people,” he further said.

Rajasthan Congress in-charge Sukhjinder Singh Randhawa commented on the budget that will be presented in the State Assembly on Wednesday, saying, “The opposition is strong in Rajasthan. There is no hope from the budget of the current government; our MLAs will challenge the government on every issue within the assembly.”

Rajasthan Leader of Opposition Tikaram Julie, who arrived at Jaipur airport, also commented on the upcoming state budget, stating, “We do not have any special expectations. Given the tenure of the Rajasthan government so far, we do not have any expectations from the budget.”

Meanwhile, Union Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman has concluded consultations with various stakeholders, including representatives from industry and social sectors, as part of the budget preparation exercise. Sitharaman will present her seventh Budget on July 23. This would be the first full budget of Modi 3.0, which aims to set the path for Vikshit Bharat (Developed India) by 2047.
