MP Shashi Tharoor came out of the parliament claiming the speech didn’t achieve much and used “rhetorical language.” 

Congress MP Shashi Tharoor claimed that Sitharaman’s budget address was one of the shortest on record and that she used ambiguous language. He stated that very few figures were utilized in the lecture. 

“It was one of the shortest speeches on record in the Budget. Not very much came out of it. As usual, a lot of rhetorical language, very little concrete on implementation. She talked about foreign investment without acknowledging that that investment has come down significantly,” Tharoor claimed. 

Tharoor also described the budget address as quite disappointing  

Shashi Tharoor described the budget address as quite disappointing.  

“She talked about a number of things which are couched in vague language like ‘confidence’ and ‘hope’ and so on. But when it comes to hard figures, very few figures available…This is going to be a very disappointing speech in terms of being couched entirely in generalities and without enough substance nor any willingness to address the specific problems of the economy,” he added.
