"The Adityanath government has made a bold initiative of including the promises mentioned in the Lok Kalyan Sankalp Patra in its first Budget itself which is a good sign," UP BJP spokesperson Rakesh Tripathi said.

He said the current budget drew inspiration from Pandit Deen Dayal Upadhyay and his thoughts of Antyodaya (benefits reaching the poorest sections of society).

"The first budget presented by the Adityanath government is certainly a historic one. The opposition parties are feeling frustrated and sad as they are unable to find any lacunae in it," he said.

"(SP chief) Akhilesh Yadav was not in Lucknow when the budget was tabled. Since there was no provision for statues and memorials, it made BSP supremo Mayawati sad," Tripathi said.
