Q: Are you happy with the budget?
Yes, I'm very happy with it. Chairperson of the standing committee on taxation and finance, Hemalatha, has presented a realistic Budget.

Q: But some experts and opposition leaders feel the Budget
is unrealistic.

Members of the opposition are there to oppose. The Budget has been drafted meticulously and painstakingly. Every sector, be it  education health, solid waste management, road infrastructure or women empowerment, has been given importance.

 

Q: Opposition leaders say the funds have not been allocated fairly, and that their wards have not received enough.
To avoid any kind of criticism on partiality we have allocated enough funds for all the wards.

Q: How do you intend to mop up revenue to make this budget
a reality?

We  aim to collect Rs 3,500 crore from property tax alone and hope to up revenue with the help of the Total Station Survey.
