 Budget 2015: Give more funds to arts and humanities sector, says Suweksha Gupta

Suweksha Gupta.

She wants the next Budget to do away with this imbalance and favours adequate budgetary allocation for educational institutions dealing with arts and humanities.

"If I were Finance Minister Arun Jaitley I would allocate more funds for arts and humanities sector because science and medical colleges are always taken care of and arts and humanities are neglected.
If more funds are allocated with quality teachers, more scholarships and better infrastructure, students won't have to go abroad," Gupta told CNN-IBN.

She wants to pursue an MBA later.
