How #UnionBudget2021 cut off health, education & social sector financing while claiming otherwise!
When 84% households have reported reduction in income, the budget has provided subsidies, tax holidays & incentives to businesses & startups instead. #FightInequality
Despite govts all over the world imposing COVID tax & 78% people in @FightInequality supporting 2% COVID cess on the rich, the #Budget2021 failed to do so. Instead GoI has 80,000 crores shortfall to meet expenditure targets which will be met through private market borrowings!
All headlines speaking abt exponential increase in spending have to be read carefully. The overall #Budget2021 has increased only by 1 percent from the revised estimate of 2020-21 with cut in education budget. indianexpress.com/article/india/…
Yesterday govt claimed in parliament that they are doing everything to provide education to the vulnerable.
Some insights from @OxfamIndia survey from five Indian states to assess state of schools during pandemic. indiaspend.com/over-80-parent…
80% of parents with children studying in government schools reported that education was “not delivered” during the lockdown. In Bihar, 100% of the parents interviewed voiced this view.
Only 8% have received cooked mid-day meals. Yesterday govt also confirmed in parliament that they have been unable to deliver mid-day meal but food security allowance & dry ration delivery is not great either.
