SIR, Odisha suffers from internal security in nearly two-third districts out of 30 districts in the state due to Naxalism – a greater unpredictable insecurity compared to border areas security. Our revered President Sri Pranab Mukherjee aptly coins the Naxal and terror zones as “Fourth World War Zones” deserving top priority to stall the menace.

Distress migration of lakhs of people every year more particularly from Western Odisha is a visible sign of under development of the state.

I appeal to the Finance Minister through you Sir, to favourably consider Odisha’s claim as special category state under the revised criteria being initiated by him.

SIR, I welcome the Finance Minister’s acceptance of the Kelkar Committee Report. Even though the modalities for un-utilised prime lands of PSUs and Port Trust are yet to be worked out, care should be taken that such lands are not diverted to private companies and the original owners who have been dispossessed and displaced should have a stake either in the form of land or cash compensation.

SIR, Finance Minister has also announced a long awaited demand from the public for revival of Nalanda University as centre of educational excellence.

In Odisha Pushpagiri ranks along with Nalanda, Vikramsilla and Thakyasilla universities as one of the primary institutions of higher learning in ancient India. It is one of the earliest Buddhist Maha Vihar spread across Jajpur district of Odisha (ancient Kalinga).Latilgiri, Udayagiri and Ratnagiri are integral parts of Pushpagiri University Complex. Unlike other ancient universities, Pushpagiri was not discovered until 1995 and hence did not received the importance that is due to it.



SIR, I would appeal to the Finance Minister to make adequate financial assistance for reconstruction Pushpagiri, which is 100 years older than Nalanda University located in Odisha.

Jai Hind...Jai Jagat....

श्री रणवीर सिंह प्रजापति (हरियाणा) : आपने मुझे बजट 2013-2014 पर विचार रखने का मौका दिया । सर बजट को देख कर बड़ी निराशा हुई । हमारा देश कृषि प्रधान देश है । माननीय महोदय, मैं हरियाणा से आता हूं । प्रदेश की जनता 80 प्रतिशत खेती पर निर्भर है । महामहिम राष्ट्रपति जी ने भी अपने अभिभाषण में कहा कि देश के अन्दर किसानों ने बम्पर पैदावार की है और खास कर के धान और कपास की रिकार्ड पैदावार हुई है । लेकिन महोदय रिकार्ड पैदावार होने के बावजूद आज किसान कर्ज में डूबता जा रहा है । आत्महत्या करने पर मजबूर है क्योंकि सरकार की गलत नीतियों के कारण किसान को महंगी D.A.P. यूरिया और पेस्टीसाइड्स खरीदने पड़ते हैं हालांकि कृषि मंत्री जी ने एक प्रश्न के जवाब में उर्वरकों के बारे में आंकड़ा दिया था कि देश और प्रदेश के अन्दर डी..पी. यूरिया की कोई कमी नहीं है । लेकिन जब किसान को अपनी फसल की बुआई करनी होती है तब उसको बाजार में डी..पी. या यूरिया उपलब्ध नही होती है और उसे एक ही जवाब मिलता है कि रैक नहीं आया है । उसे ब्लैक में यूरिया और डी..पी. खरीदनी पड़ती है । माननीय महोदय, मुझे समझ में नहीं आता है कि जब हमें यूरिया, डी..पी. उर्वरक विदेश से आयात ही करने हैं तो हम समय पर आयात क्यों नहीं करते । सरकार को चाहिये कि किसान की फसलों की MSP फिक्स करे और न केवल MSP फिक्स करे बल्कि उस पर सरकार सुनिश्चित करे कि किसान की फसल अगर बाजार से सस्ते दाम पर बिक रही है तो सरकार MSP रेट पर स्वयं खरीदे । जब हरियाणा में चौधरी ओम प्रकाश चौटाला की सरकार थी तब उन्होंने सरकारी एजेंसियों को निर्देश दिए थे कि वे किसान की फसल चाहे बाजरा हो, गेहूं हो, कपास हो, सरसों इत्यादि MSP रेट पर खरीद करें । लेकिन दुर्भाग्य है कि आज किसान जो पूरे देश का पेट भरने का काम करता है, वह अपना खुद का घर चलाने के लिए संसाधन नहीं जुटा पाता । सरकार का हर महीने डीज़ल के रेट में बढ़ोत्तरी करने का निर्णय किसान को और कर्ज में डुबाने का काम कर रहा है । पेट्रोलियम पदार्थों की कीमत में लगातार हो रही बढ़ोत्तरी के कारण न केवल किसान बल्कि आम आदमी पर लगातार महंगाई का बोझ बढ़ रहा है । इस बजट में आम आदमी को निराशा ही हाथ लगी है । इस बजट से जहां किसान को भारी नुकसान है वही गरीब मजदूर का संकट और अधिक गहरा हुआ है क्योंकि बजट में महगाई पर रोक लगाने का कोई प्रावधान मुझे नज़र नहीं आया जिसके कारण खेती और मजदूरी से जुड़ा हर गरीब मजदूर और परेशान हो गया है ।

माननीय महोदय, आज देश की राजधानी दिल्ली समेत देश में कानून व्यवस्था के हालात चिन्ताजनक हैं । महिलाओं पर अपराध निरंतर बढ़े हैं और जब कानून व्यवस्था बिगड़ती है तब गरीब आदमी, चाहे दलित हों या पिछड़ा वर्ग से हों, वे सब से ज्यादा अपराध के शिकार होते हैं । पिछले कुछ समय में हरियाणा के हालात बद से बदतर हुए हैं। यहां तक कि एस.सी.,एस.टी. आयोग के राट्रीय चेयरमैन महोदय ने भी हरियाणा की स्थिति को चिन्ताजनक बताते हुए हरियाणा प्रदेश को रेप प्रदेश की संज्ञा देने का काम किया । इस बजट में इस प्रकार के मामलों की रोकथाम के लिए कोई विशेष बात नहीं है । महामहिम महोदय ने अपने भाषण में 10 लाख मकान गरीबों को (BPL) देने की बात कही है लेकिन जब केन्द्र की सरकार की नीति-नीयत यह है कि 28 रुपये प्रतिदिन कमाने वाला व्यक्ति BPL में नहीं आएगा तो फिर मनरेगा के तहत जो मजदूर काम करते हैं उनका नाम भी BPL सूची से बाहर होगा । जब BPL की सूची से मजदूरों का नाम ही कट जाएगा तो सरकार मकान किस को बना कर देगी । 'ना नौ मन तेल होगा, ना राधा नाचेगी।'

सर, मैं माननीय वित्त मंत्री जी से कहना चाहूंगा कि उन्हें इस बजट में डीज़ल के दामों में जो लगातार बढ़ोत्तरी हुई है, किसान की हालत देखते हुए उसे डीज़ल में सब्सिडी दे कर सस्ता डीज़ल उपलब्ध करवाना चाहिये तथा DAP यूरिया उर्वरकों पर बढ़ोत्तरी तुरंत वापिस लेनी चाहिये । सर, रसोई गैस मामले को लेकर हुई नीति पर भी पुन: विचार करके लगाई गई लिमिटेशन हटानी चाहिये ताकि आदमी राहत की सांस ले सके । धन्यवाद ।

SHRI C.M. RAMESH (ANDHRA RAMESH):

Thank you Mr. Vice-Chairman, Sir, to speak on the Budget for 2013-14. Except creating Nirbhaya Fund, exclusive bank for women and one or two other initiatives, this Budget is insipid and devoid of any concrete reforms to bail out the Indian economy out of its present doom and gloom. Sir, the fall in Sensex by 300 points on the day of Budget and Finance Minister’s pleading the super-rich even to impose 10% surcharge gives enough indication that it is not only the scriptwriter, but even the script is wrong.

As a layman and person who know little about economics, I see the Budget from Aam Aadmi’s point of view. This Budget will spur inflation as subsidies bill has been brought down from 2.58 lakh crores to 2.31 lakh crores for 2013-14. Not only this, the subsidy on petroleum products has also been reduced from 98,000 crores to 65,000 crores. These two retrograde initiatives alone would hit Aam Aadmi the most.

Sir, even an ordinary man, on reading the Budget, will understand that Finance Minister is interested in controlling fiscal deficit instead of addressing the socio-economic problems being faced by the people of this country for the last 10 years. To rein in fiscal deficit at 5.2%, the Finance Minister has cut 92,000 crores in the Plan expenditure in the current year. Sir, plan expenditure is what Government spends on implementation of various social sector schemes and asset creation. So, Finance Minister has ‘sacrificed’ social sector schemes and asset creation to contain fiscal deficit at 5.2%. It is good that he has not gone beyond 5.2%. If he thought of taking fiscal deficit to 2007-08 level of 3.1%, probably, he would have provided just a few lakh rupees as Plan expenditure and you can imagine the plight of Aam Aadmi in such a scenario. Secondly, look at the sectors where he has imposed the cut. BE of Agriculture for 2012-13 was 16,121 crores, but it has been reduced to 13,787 crores now; HRD from 61,427 crores to 56,223 crores; Rural Development’s expenditure which implements NREGA has been brought down by more than 21,000 crores to name a few. This reflects his concern towards the social sector of this country. Can there be a bigger joke and betrayal of the people of this country than this?

Thirdly, even if you look at the Gross Budgetary Support, it is also disappointing. The Hon. Minister asserted that there is 30% increase in the Plan expenditure for 2013-14 over the RE of 2012-13. Surely, it will be there. Because you have reduced 92,000 crores of Plan expenditure at the RE stage for 2012-13! Sir, Finance Minister is well aware of the fact that a meaningful comparison can only be made between two similar items. In this case either between two BEs or two REs and not between BE and RE. So, if you look at this year’s Plan expenditure, it is 5.21 lakh crores while the Plan expenditure for next year is 5.55 lakh crores. The hike is just 6.5% which is not commensurate with the inflation which is now hovering around 7.5%. This clearly shows that his claim of 30% increase is baseless and misleading. He can sell his script by saying that there is a 30% increase to Aam Aadmi as they do not understand his financial jugglery, but not to others.

Sir, next I come to National Food Security which was an election promise of the UPA Government in 2009. Congress has been dragging it since 2009 and, I am sure, that it would not drag it any further and will enact the Bill just before the next elections to reap electoral gains. Last month a meeting of all Food Ministers of States was held to discuss various issues. Many States have expressed reservations on the Bill. In fact, some States like Tamil Nadu wanted to be excluded from this scheme. Even though the objective of the scheme is laudable, but with just 10,000 crores allotted in this Budget, I am deeply worried and unsure as to how it is going to be implemented. Sir, even the NAC, headed by Smt. Sonia Gandhi, has criticised this move. Let me give details. This year food subsidy bill is estimated to be 75,000 crores. But, the actual RE shows an expenditure of 85,000 crores. Now, the Finance Minister, for 2013-14, has given 80,000 crores which is 5,000 crores less than the RE of 2012-13 and provided 10,000 crores extra for Food Security Bill. But, effectively, the increase is only 5,000 crores. So, I fully agree with Shri N.C. Saxena, Member of NAC, that it is nothing but deceit to fool the people of this country. The Government will implement this scheme in the next 10 months. So, the Finance Minister should have, at least, provided 40,000 crores for Food Security Bill. Otherwise, it clearly shows that Government is not serious about addressing hunger and mal-nourishment in the country.

I will now mention as to how the Hon. Finance Minister has played havoc with other social sector schemes. Sir, it is with these schemes the UPA Government wants to achieve the inclusive growth and wipe out disparity between rich and poor. And, it is with the slogan Congress Ka Haath, Aam Adami Ke Saath this Congress-led Government came to power. But, Finance Minister has other plans in his mind. He said in his speech that wisdom lies in finding the correct level of Government expenditure. And, he has shown this “wisdom” not in words, but in deeds at the cost of Aam Aadmi. I will give you an example. Hon. Finance Minister boasted that he has given 33,000 crores to NREGA for 2013-14, but it is the same amount that was provided this year. PMGSY is 21,700 crores for 2013-14 which is roughly 10% less than Rs.24,000 crores given in 2012-13. RGGVY is given 4,500 crores for 2013-14 which is about 8% less than 4,900 crores allocated during the current year. The list goes on. Why he has done all this? He has done this only with a single objective in mind and that is to prove his point and hidden agenda that the country is in the dire need of foreign investment. Does India require foreign investment by resorting to such anti-people measures? My party does not subscribe to such investment at the cost of common man. The former Finance Minister, Shri Pranab Mukherjee, has rightly said that India lived without foreign investment earlier and India will survive without foreign investment, if required, in future as well. That is the reason why I say that this Budget is not in the interest of the common man.

I now come to agriculture credit. I congratulate the Finance Minister for increasing agriculture credit from 5.75 lakh crores this year to 7 lakh crores for 2013-14. It is nearly 10 times of target set in 2002-03. It is good. But, the point is, farmers have been requesting for reducing the interest to 3%. But, in this Budget, Finance Minister has not shown any mercy towards farmers. It is their genuine demand if you look at the investment required for production and the amount that he gets for his produce through MSP. So, I only urge the Finance Minister to be magnanimous towards the farming community and provide farm loan at 3%. Secondly, hon. Minister is well aware that the farming community is in deep trouble. Farmers are looking for debt waiver again. Even Shri Chandrababu Naidu also demanded for waiving the agriculture loans in his Padayatra. This will help the farmers a lot. So, I request the Finance Minister to seriously think about it.

Sir, I now come to personal tax. Every tax payer eagerly waits for the Budget with the hope that he would get some tax relief. We all know that it is only the salaried class which cannot escape from the clutches of tax net as their entire income is like an open book unlike business people. What relief Minister has given to salaried tax payers this time is virtually nothing! He has given 2,000 exemption to those whose income is less than 5 lakhs per annum. If you calculate, it comes to 166 p.m. It is a pittance. So, I request tax relief, particularly for women. Secondly, there is indiscipline in tax administration and tax collection. Current year’s tax collection fell by 40,000 crores of BE. This year, the Finance Minister has set a target of 12.33 lakh crores of direct and indirect tax collections. I suggest him to be strict and adopt intelligent means to achieve this target.

I welcome that the Finance Minister has shown generosity towards first home buyers by giving additional interest deduction of 1 lakh up to loan amount of 25 lakhs. But, it should have been given for, at least, 3 years which will boost the real estate sector which is subdued in the last few years. Secondly, real estate is considered as the major sector of engine of growth and there have been demands from the real estate sector and also from others for giving infrastructure status to the real estate sector. Further, RBI is allowing only 6% of total lending of banks to real estate sector at a time when the global average is 25% that needs to be corrected especially when construction costs have escalated significantly. The Government has introduced the Real Estate Regulatory Bill without consulting the Confederation of Real Estate Developers Association of India and other stakeholders. The real estate sector is opposing this Bill as it mandates to deposit 70% of sale proceeds in bank account and there are other provisions which are detrimental to this sector. I request the Hon. Finance Minister to accord infrastructure status to real estate sector and persuade the RBI to provide, at least, 20% of total lending of banks to real estate sector for its sustainable growth and address their concerns in the Bill.

We are not getting foreign investment and MNCs are not coming mainly due to lack of infrastructure. There is no mention in the Budget what Government is going to do to provide infrastructure. If we provide necessary infrastructure only then MNCs will come and we will get revenue which increases our growth. So, I suggest for putting more emphasis on infrastructure.

I read closely the Budget Speech of the Finance Minister to find out whether he has announced any steps to curb black money and bring back black money stashed in foreign banks. Some reports say the amount is 1.4 trillion dollars, CBI says 500 billion dollars and some reports say it is more than 2 trillion dollars. Whatever may be the figure, but the fact of the matter is that lakhs of crores of money belonging to the poor man of this country are stashed illegally in foreign banks. All I ask the Finance Minister is to share with us the details of the roadmap drawn by him to bring back this black money.

Secondly, banks are mandated to give loans to MSME, agriculture and other sectors which need it the most. But, if you look at the Credit Suisse Report 2012, it indicates that 11 companies debt is 6 lakh crores which is 14% debt of total bank loans and 98% of networth of banking system. The growth rate of corporate lending is 50% and for agriculture, MSMEs it is much less. So, this clearly shows that Indian banking system, in the last five years, is driven by a select few corporate groups. I request the Minister to rectify this anomaly.

Sir, I also welcome the proposal for setting up of water purification plants to cover arsenic and fluoride affected rural areas. And, for this Ministry of Drinking Water and Sanitation has been given Rs.1,400 crores. Sir, 19 districts in AP and 16 districts in Tamil Nadu are affected with fluoride. The Minister might be aware that Nalgonda district in AP is the worst fluoride affected district in the country. So, I request the Hon. Minister to set up sufficient number of water purification plants in AP.

Sir, these are some of the views I wish to place before the Hon. Minister and request him not to forget the common man. Otherwise, they will forget you in the coming elections. The Prime Minister has rightly said, while replying to the debate on the Motion of Thanks on the President’s Address, that the so-called BIMARU States have done much better in UPA period. So, I only advise the Hon. Finance Minister rise above the party politics and not to grudge but provide more financial support to any State which has done this country proud both at the national and international level.

Since public is the shareholder and the Govt being the management appointed by these shareholders as the custodian of public finances, the Govt needs to put in place its Key Performance Indicators which are SMART (Stretch, Measurable, Actionable, Result and Time-oriented) broken into 12 monthly targets along with Quarterly, Half Yearly and Annual Performance Reviews by the general public. Hence, I urge the Finance Minister to put in place a barometer for people of this country to measure Govt's Budgetary targets Versus achievements on periodic basis, thereby making Budget a meaningful and relevant exercise for them.

When in the case of M/S Satyam Computers despite not having much loans and any bank debts on its books, the Govt promptly initiated SFIO and other investigations, took immediate control and changed the management as soon as the fraud was reported in Satyam, why Govt is keeping silent and has not initiated any action so far against M/S Deccan Chronicle which is indebted with bank loans of more than Rs.7500 crs and when the financial bungling and misappropriation has been widely reported with many of the banks having already initiated legal actions for recovering their dues? Your silence in such matters of public and Govt interest is raising doubts about your sincerity with double standards being adopted to nab and apprehend the perpetrators of the financial crimes in the country.
Todays's one of the leading national business daily newspaper has widely reported about the "Road to loan recovery tough for banks" with the top ten most indebted leading, prestigious and famous (or infamous) Corporate Houses having a Market Capitalization of Rs.1,90,738.2crs as against their consolidated borrowings (including all their group companies) of Rs.4,35,734.8crs (as on 31.03.2012). Further all listed companies (with their debt higher than their market cap) have a total borrowing of Rs.16,18,618.7crs as against their market cap of only Rs.6,67,288.5crs, thereby, implying a huge unrecoverable gap of Rs.9,51,330.2crs. This is already in the public knowledge and I would like to know as to what actions are being taken by Hon. Minister for ensuring the safety of the public money as well as the retail shareholders who are at loss as well as the risk of losing their hard earned money in the current scenario.

With these words, I conclude my speech.



Thank you!!!

SHRI P. KANNAN (PUDUCHERY):


Hon. Chairman,
I would like to lay following points in the Budget presented by Hon. Finance Minister.
The tax for A/c Restaurant may be reconsidered and pl. be withdrawn as it is against the interest of middle class and lower middle class people as they generally go for such restaurants and moreover now a days the mere A/c may not considered as luxury at all.

 श्री महेन्द्र सिंह माहरा (उत्तराखंड): मान्यवर चेयरमैन सर, पंचवर्षीय योजनाओं के लक्षित बिन्दुओं को वार्षिक रूप से प्रतिरूपित करने का आधार आम बजट ही है, जिसके माध्यम से योजनाओं की प्रगति व समीक्षा किया जाना सम्भव हो पाता है। बजट देश की आर्थिक प्रगति, नीतियों की एक तस्वीर देश व दुनिया के सामने रखने व सरकार की दृढ़ इच्छा शक्ति का परिचायक है। मान्यवर, वर्तमान वित्तीय वर्ष के बजट में सरकार ने अपने पूर्व निर्धारित लक्ष्यों की प्राप्ति एवं सामाजिक व आर्थिक जगत के विकास में विशेष प्रयास किए हैं। बुनियादी ढाँचे के लिए राजकोषीय घाटे को कम करना, विदेशी निवेश को आकर्षित करने, आंतरिक बचत बढ़ाने के लिए भौतिक व वित्तीय सम्पत्तियों के आवंटन के तरीकों में बदलाव हेतु नये संस्थागत उपायों, जैसे महँगाई से जुड़े बांड, राष्ट्रीय महँगाई बचत पत्र, एक्सचेंज ट्रेडेड फंड का सरलीकरण, राजीव गांधी इक्विटी योजना द्वारा 12 लाख तक के वर्ग को प्राथमिक व द्वितीयक बाजार में प्रवेश के अवसर एवं पाँच लाख तक की वार्षिक आय तक के वर्ग के करदाताओं को 20,000 रुपये की अतिरिक्त क्रयशक्ति दी गयी है।

मान्यवर, ऋण बाजार के विकास व उसे प्रभावी बनाने के लिए मध्यम व लघु उद्योगों की संख्या वृद्धि व आर्थिक दृढ़ता प्रदान करने के उपायों को प्राथमिकता दी गयी है। इससे समाज के मध्यम व निम्न आय वर्ग के लोगों को रोजगार के विशेष अवसर प्राप्त होंगे।

मान्यवर, उत्तराखंड के परिप्रेक्ष्य में यह बजट सराहनीय है। राज्य के 6.66 लाख पंजीकृत बेरोजगारों व अन्य शिक्षा प्राप्त युवाओं के लिए स्किल डेवलपमेंट फंड की राष्ट्रीय स्तर पर स्थापना की घोषणा उनकी तकनीकी कुशलता व आत्मनिर्भरता में वृद्धि के अवसर पैदा करेगा एवं इस राज्य से युवा शक्तियों के पलायन को रोकने में प्रभावी होगा तथा उनके विश्वास व आय बढ़ाने में सहायक रहेगा। इस योजना में प्रशिक्षण पूर्ण कर प्रमाण पत्र के साथ स्वरोजगार व उद्यमिता विकास हेतु दी जाने वाली 10 हजार की राशि उन्हें शारीरिक व मानसिक रूप से तैयार करेगी।

मान्यवर, खनन व रेता व्यवसाय तथा अन्य समकक्ष व्यवसाय से जुड़े राज्य के खनन मजदूरों के लिए राष्ट्रीय बीमा योजना उन्हें सामाजिक व आर्थिक सुरक्षा प्रदान करेगी।

मान्यवर, महिला बाहुल्य उत्तराखंड राज्य में इनकी सामाजिक सुरक्षा व आर्थिक विकास हेतु महिला बैंक व निर्भया फंड की स्थापना विशेष उपलब्धि रही। इसके लिए महिला व बाल विकास तथा अन्य संबंधित मंत्रालयों के माध्यम से शीघ्र योजनाओं का क्रियान्वयन सरकार की दृढ़ इच्छाशक्ति का परिचायक है।

मान्यवर, ग्रामीण स्वास्थ्य मिशन योजना से उत्तराखंड के छोटे व दुर्गम गाँवों को विशेष लाभ विगत वर्षों में प्राप्त हुआ है। इससे चिकित्सा सुविधाओं में विशेष उल्लेखनीय वृद्धि हुई है। इसी से प्रेरित 108 एम्बुलेंस ने चिकित्सा सुविधा प्रदान कर सेवा के क्षेत्र में विश्व कीर्तिमान बनाया है। प्राप्त सफलता को आगे बढ़ाने के लिए शहरी क्षेत्रों को भी राष्ट्रीय स्वास्थ्य मिशन के अंतर्गत लाना स्वागतयोग्य है।

मान्यवर, कृषि क्षेत्र में खाद्यान्न की उपलब्धता बढ़ा कर अंतर्राष्ट्रीय महँगाई को नियंत्रण में लाने का बजट प्रस्ताव भारत जैसे कृषि प्रधान अर्थव्यवस्था के लिए महत्वपूर्ण है। इसके लिए 22 प्रतिशत बजटीय वृद्धि, कृषि अनुसंधान व संस्थागत विकास सघन उत्पादकता को प्रेरित करेगी। राष्ट्रीय कृषि विकास एवं खाद्य सुरक्षा मिशन की निरंतरता को बजट में बनाए रखने से प्रथम हरित क्रांति के राज्यों, उत्तर प्रदेश, पंजाब, हरियाणा व द्वितीय हरित क्रांति से पूर्वोत्तर राज्यों को प्रोत्साहन प्राप्त होगा तथा यूपीए सरकार का इस प्रकार के प्रोत्साहन का बजट प्रस्ताव विशेष प्रयास व उपलब्धि है। इसका सीधा लाभ उत्तराखंड के कृषकों को पिछले कई वर्षों से प्राप्त हो रहा है और वर्तमान बजट से स्पष्ट होता है कि यह आगे भी निरन्तर जारी रहेगा।

मान्यवर, पशुधन उत्तराखंड की आय व आत्मनिर्भरता का प्रमुख स्रोत रहा है। इसके लिए राष्ट्रीय पशु मिशन और दाने-चारे के लिए उपमिशन की शुरुआत इस क्षेत्र को आत्मनिर्भर बनाने व आर्थिक विकास दर बढ़ाने में सहायक होगी।

मान्यवर, संयुक्त प्रगतिशील गठबंधन की हमारी सरकार की ग्रामीण विकास योजनाएँ विगत वर्षों में विशेष उपलब्धि कारक प्रयोगवादी व अनूठी रही हैं। महात्मा गांधी रोजगार गारंटी योजना, प्रधान मंत्री सड़क योजना, राजीव गांधी ग्रामीण विद्युतीकरण योजना, इंदिरा आवास योजना जैसी सामाजिक व आधारमूलीय आर्थिक योजनाओं ने विश्व का ध्यान भारत की ओर आकर्षित किया है। इन योजनाओं से आर्थिक सेवा का क्षेत्र मजबूत हुआ है और क्रयशक्ति की प्रगति से महँगाई व बेरोजगारी जैसी विश्वव्यापी समस्याओं में तुलनात्मक रूप से नियंत्रण संभव हो पाया है, जो आगे भी जारी रहेगा।

मान्यवर, ग्रामीण पेयजल व स्वच्छता मिशन से जीवन स्तर में गुणात्मक परिवर्तन भारत के ग्रामीण परिवेश में दृष्टिगोचर हुआ है। सर्वशिक्षा अभियान व मिड-डे मील जैसी लोकप्रिय योजनाओं ने गरीब व आर्थिक रूप से विफल तबकों के शैक्षिक उन्नयीकरण में महत्वपूर्ण भूमिका प्रस्तुत की है।

मान्यवर, अनुसूचित जाति, जनजाति, अल्पसंख्यक वर्ग तथा बीपीएल के लिए आर्थिक सहायता व सर्वांगीण विकास हेतु आधारभूत सुविधाओं के प्रसारीकरण, नियोजन ने एक नया परिवर्तन भारतीय समाज को दिया है। इससे समेकित सुरक्षा बीमा व अल्प बचत की अनेक योजनाएँ सफल हुई हैं। यही प्रावधान इस वर्ष के बजट में पुन: किया गया है।

मान्यवर, इसी राष्ट्रीय प्रगति का प्रतिनिधित्व कांग्रेस शासित उत्तराखंड राज्य करता है, जिसका अधिकांश भाग पवर्तीय है। उपरोक्त योजनाओं के माध्यम से युवाओं के पलायन में प्रभावी कमी, रोजगार के साधनों के अवसरों में वृद्धि तथा आर्थिक विकास के लिए ढाँचागत सुविधाओं के विकास से वर्तमान में उत्तराखंड राज्य ने राष्ट्रीय विकास दर से अधिक गति प्राप्त की है, जो कि संप्रग सरकार की स्वच्छ संचालन की देन है।

मान्यवर, मुझे बजट जैसे महत्वपूर्ण विषय पर बोलने का अवसर प्रदान किया, इस हेतु मैं आपको धन्यवाद देता हूँ और प्रस्तुत बजट का समर्थन करता हूँ।
