P Chidambaram – Former Union Finance Minister:
- Yesterday, PM gave us a headline and a blank page. Naturally, my reaction was a blank!
- Today, we look forward to the FM filling the blank page.
- We will carefully count every ADDITIONAL rupee that the government will actually infuse into the economy.
- We will also carefully examine who gets what?
- And the first thing we will look for is what the poor, hungry and devastated migrant workers can expect after they have walked hundreds of kilometres to their home states.
- We will also examine what the bottom half of the population (13 crore families) will get in terms of REAL MONEY.
