FM said the government take bold decisions to revive the economy

New Delhi: Indicating that his Budget will not have any “mindless populism”, finance minister Arun Jaitley said Tuesday the government will follow the path of fiscal prudence to revive the economy and take “bold decisions”.

“If you indulge in mindless populism, you burden the exchequer. You convert yourself into a high-taxation society. It doesn’t work. Therefore, if you have to follow the path of fiscal prudence, (you should) have a certain amount of discipline,” Mr Jaitley said
