Former Agricultural Secretary Siraj Hussain says his main expectation from the Budget was a roadmap for investment in the agriculture and rural sector, as promised in the BJP manifesto, and added that the Budget did not meet it. He said that he also expected some measures for water in view of the shortage of water faced in several parts across the country, but the Budget also gave it a miss. He, however, adds that in terms of finance and industry, the Budget has taken some important steps.
