Chennai: Veteran actor Kamal Haasan, who has announced his foray into politics, on Friday said the Union Budget showed that the Centre's attention has "slightly" turned towards farmers and rural areas.

This was a 'bit soothing,' he said.

 

However, the Centre seems to have been 'indifferent' to the middle classes, he said in his response to the budget presented on Thursday by Finance Minister Arun Jaitley.
