The present BJP government’s 6th full budget in its 5-year term, presented by interim Finance Minister Piyush Goyal, left people tweeting many jokes and memes.
With #Budget2019 dominating trends online, many shared hilarious memes, trolls and jokes about how they feel by the Finance Minister’s announcements. Trolls are comparing Piyush Goyal presenting the budget to Rajinikanth’s signature moves, MS Dhoni sixes, Shah Rukh Khan and what not.
The Budget 2019 was crucial as it was NDA government’s last budget ahead of the 2019 general elections.
There was a financial support package for marginal farmers that includes direct cash transfer of Rs 6,000 per year in three instalments.
Goyal announced that the existing income tax rates would stay but those with income less than Rs 5 lakh will get full tax rebate (it was 3 lakh earlier). Those earning up to Rs 6.5 lakh may also have no tax burden if they invest Rs 1.5 lakh in tax-saving instruments. The Finance Minister also announced tax benefits for home owners, people living on rent, investors in post office savings and others.
On Twitter, the budget soon led to a flood of memes and jokes. While some celebrated the tax relief, others criticised the budget with sarcastic tweets.
Take a look at some of the most hilarious reactions below:-
