The BNP has termed the proposed budget as highly ambitious and said it erodes the change of development as very slim.“This is a highly ambitious budget. It will never be possible for government to achieve its expected growth,” said BNP secretary general Mirza Fakhrul Islam Alamgir.
In his instant reaction, he said the government had failed to fulfill its stated goal to achieve its expected growth rate in the current fiscal.
“The government failed to realize its expected revenue collection to achieve its desired goal,” he said.
The BNP leader said the goal was not achieved due to different reasons including non-investment in the private sector.
He questioned the ability of the government to fulfil its earning achievement in the ensuing fiscal.
Fakhrul also termed the budget so-called one and said there is a little hope for development in the budget due to increasing salaries and allowances.
He criticised the government to allocate small amount of money in agriculture and industries sectors.
Asked whether the BNP, that had boycotted the January 5 general elections, would give a formal reaction to the proposed budget, he replied in the affirmative and said they would come up with their observation very soon.
Meanwhile, addressing a discussion meeting at Institution of Diploma Engineers, Bangladesh, BNP senior joint secretary general Ruhul Kabir Rizvi termed the budget as budget of falsehood, thieving and corruption.
“Neither the budget will restore the rights of people nor it will ensure their welfare,” he said.
He termed the government voter less and said it has no popularity. What can be the reaction of budget placed by such a voter less government, he questioned.-STAFF REPORTER
