Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman, while speaking on the budget in Rajya Sabha on Friday, said that the next 25 years are important for India.

He said that we have presented a budget to bring stability to the economy.
Sitharaman said that if people and economy have to be saved from this crisis, then growth is the only way. That’s why this budget was made keeping in mind the growth. Not only this, the budget of 2021 was also growth oriented. Sitharaman said in the Rajya Sabha that work is being done on the PM Gati Shakti master plan under the capital expenditure.

According to the government, this scheme will remove all the obstacles in infrastructure development. The economy has been strengthened by PM Gati Shakti. With the help of this infrastructure facilities will be increased for 100 years.
