New Delhi: Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman is expected to balance the needs of the economy and fiscal constraints in her maiden Budget. In the process, some believe that she may give relief to the common man by raising personal income tax threshold for certain categories, while on the other hand, increasing expenditure on agriculture, healthcare and social sectors. Infrastructure is also expected to be a key sector for big push by the government.

Here are some powerful finance ministers from the past and their key proposals in their respective budgets.

  1. Sir,
    The news report about Son brings water for his mother Sonia Gandhi who had joined in the protest called by the opposition party after she stood in the hot blazing sun in the Capital city of Delhi was really very touchy news. That this lady who is of a foreign nature & the wife of a well known & famous Ex Prime Minister Rajiv Gandhi, clearly proves how loyal and sincere she is towards this country even though she is not physically fit herself. To think that she is so loyal to the Congress party & held top posts in this party should be much appreciated by all the citizens of this country. We wish her all good luck & Good health.

  2. All are 2 penny socialist duds. 1991 capitalist budget was due to IMF requirements imposed on bankrupt socialist Bharat. So Keynesian quack Manmohan Singh is just like any other wastrel.
