Finance Minister P Chidambaram has finally finished delivering his Budget speech for 2013-14, and the initial reactions have been so varied, it's like there have been more than one speech! Kiran Bedi seems to love it, while the BJP say that it is "confusing".
We have collated some reactions here:
Focus on Skills Dev. And job creation. Covers all sections of society! Excellent.

This was my 10th #Budget & undoubtedly the best, given the economic pressures. Highlight was the impetus given to women & skills training
