PM Modi: Transport system will be rapidly improve in this era in india
Mumbai,February 10: Stressing the benefits of modernisation of the public transport system, Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Friday noted its rapid improvement while saying that one of the thrust areas in this year’s Union Budget was infrastructure system.
Modern trains are being introduced and Metro services are being expanded, new airports and ports are being constructed in line with our vision to take the country forward,” PM Modi said after flagging off the Vande Bharat Express trains from Mumbai.
“Our thinking bears ample reflection in the Union Budget. For the first time, Rs 10 lakh crore has been allocated for infrastructure development. This is five times more in comparison to the outlay in the last nine years,” he added.
Bringing up the tax rebate by the Centre in the Union Budget, Prime Minister Modi compared the tax slabs under the BJP government with those of the previous UPA government, saying that the Congress-led government taxed the middle class while the BJP government exempted them from taxes.
