Modi added that Union Budget 2018 will fulfill the hopes and aspirations of the common man. “A month after the Budget session, various committees deliberate upon the details of the Budget proposals,” Modi said. “The past experience shows that in those deliberations the national interest is above the political interests. Cutting across party line even the MPs from the ruling party highlights its short-comings while the members of opposition highlight its salient feature,” Modi said in crucial media address ahead of the Budget session. “In a way it provides for a healthy environment and atmosphere for debate and discussion,” he said.
