Media loses it after Budget 2019: From ‘Hindi imposition’ to ‘where is the money’

Some usual fault finders in media never stop criticising the government's every move, the Union budget was no exception.

The acting Finance Minister Piyush Goyal today presented the interim budget 2019 which is also the last budget of the first tenure of this government. Some sweeping announcements were made in the budget like the full tax rebate for individuals with up to 5 lakh rupees annual income, structured income support for farmers, mega pension for workers in the unorganised sector and much more.

While the budget appears to provide relief to the individual taxpayers and the farmers, it has caused deep restlessness among certain usual suspects in media. Some had a problem with the budget being presented in Hindi and some couldn’t stop worrying as to where the money will come from. Here are some “serious” concerns expressed by certain journalists over the budget and the witty reactions of people:

As some journalists expressed their concern as to where the money would come from, people were quick to come up with suggestions.

People also questioned as to why these highly concerned individuals did not worry about money when Rahul Gandhi promised minimum universal basic income.

Next in the line were some colonised brains raising objections over the use of Hindi in the budget, claiming half the country cannot understand the language.

This made people question her logic.

Seems like certain sections of media can’t get over their compulsive disorder of finding faults in everything or anything the Modi government does. Time and again their bias stands exposed by the common people proving that they reflect anything but reality.
